During this year’s Latin Trade Symposium, Belcorp CEO Eduardo Belmont will be one of six corporate leaders to receive a 2015 BRAVO Business Award honoring excellence and leadership in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Latin Trade Group, the organization behind the symposium, has named Belmont the recipient of its Social Sustainability of the Year Award. According to the judges, the award honors Belcorp foremost “for improving the lives of hundreds of thousands of families through the support of more than 1 million female beauty consultants.” The panel commended the beauty and personal-care brand, which has achieved $1.4 billion in annual revenue, for “committed action” on behalf of employees, consumers, suppliers, the community and the environment.
The BRAVO nomination process takes place through the group’s magazine, Latin Trade, whose readers nominate individuals across the public and private sector. The magazine’s editorial team consults with past honorees, international business executives, and government and academic leaders to narrow the list of candidates.
Latin Trade Group is partnering with outlets such as CNN, The Financial Times and PR Newswire to present its annual one-day conference, followed by the 21st BRAVO Business Awards, a black-tie gala recognizing the BRAVO winners. This year’s event will take place Oct. 29 in Miami.
