Updated: Aug 17, 2018
Amerikas is thrilled to announce that we have made the Inc. 5000’s list of the Fastest Growing Private Companies in America for 2018, ranking as #852 out of 5,000. This is an honorable achievement, as the list has previously included companies such as Microsoft, Timberland, Vizio, Intuit, Chobani, Oracle and Zappos.com.
“Making the Inc. 5000 list for the first time is an important milestone in our development and we are excited to be part of such a great list. It validates key decisions we have made, which are different from what the industry seemed to initially dictate us to do,” said CEO Jose Penalba. “It also demonstrates that with technology, a committed & adaptable team and the right partners, we were able to meet our goals and deliver a strong level of growth. I am grateful for our team and partners we share this honor with and we are ambitious to remain part of the Inc. 5000 list for many years to come.”
Founded in 2013 by Penalba, Amerikas distributes international beauty brands into the U.S. Our goal is to make these brands accessible to consumers in all of the Americas. The company’s impressive portfolio includes health and beauty brands such as Bioderma and Mustela, as well as niche fragrance brands like Berdoues, Floris, Jovoy and more. Amerikas partners with many major retailers in the U.S., including Sephora, Nordstrom, Saks and hundreds of independent pharmacies and perfumeries in order to effectively distribute their brands.
“Our team really works well together,” said Dominique Farino, Project Manager at Amerikas. “We are passionate and knowledgeable about the beauty industry and are dedicated to determining the most effective distribution models for all of our unique brands.”
Amerikas is based out of New York City with sales representatives present across the nation. The company has grown over 580% over the last three years and plans on adding more brands to our portfolio in the future.
