Forbes names Oribe Hair Care one of the most promising companies of America
This month, Forbes named Oribe Hair Care in its annual America’s Most Promising Companies list. Each year the publication evaluates hundreds of companies based on growth (both in sales and hiring), sustainability, quality of management team and investors, margins, market size and key partnerships and those that score high make the list. Oribe Hair Care did well in all catergories to make the cut.
“We started this business with the ambition of building a company with amazing employees, products and education that would be recognized for setting a new standard by stylists and consumers around the world,” says Oribe co-president Daniel Kaner. “As we celebrate our five-year anniversary, it’s humbling to be acknowledged by a business institution like Forbes and to see how far we’ve come in achieving our dream.”
“It’s wonderful to see a hair brand that was created by a hairdresser for salon professionals get recognized by a global publication like Forbes,” says Oribe co-president Tevya Finger. “We feel that this honor does not just recognize the company we’ve built, but the hair industry as a whole.”
