DALLAS (Jan. 19, 2015) – In a town where records are made, Mary Kay is busy breaking them. As the beauty company kicks off their annual U.S. Leadership Conference in Nashville this week, Mary Kay reports another year of double digit growth in global sales over a record-breaking year in 2013 when the company celebrated 50 years in business.
 

“After our biggest year in company history, Mary Kay markets around the world continue to set sales records,” said David Holl, President and Chief Executive Officer for Mary Kay Inc. “We’re celebrating the company’s success in Nashville this week and that for more than five decades now the Mary Kay opportunity has appealed to women of all backgrounds and ages who want to pursue short-or long-term financial goals.”
 

The city of Nashville will play host to more than 8,500 leading Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultants during the conference held Jan. 18-24 at the Nashville Music City Center. Along with iconic Mary Kay pink Cadillacs, the weeklong conference brings Nashville nearly $3 million in direct visitor spending.
 

“From the live music scene to the shopping centers, restaurants and hotels, we’ve grown to love Nashville and are thrilled to be back for our annual Leadership Conference this year,” said Laura Beitler, Vice President of Recognition and Events for Mary Kay Inc. “The local community makes our Independent Beauty Consultants feel welcome and right at home. As thousands of independent sales force members from across the nation paint the town pink for a week, we’re happy to infuse millions of dollars into the Nashville economy.”
 

Each year, Mary Kay holds its U.S. Leadership Conference in a different city in the United States. Designed to provide education, inspiration and further develop the leaders within Mary Kay’s independent sales force, the conference consists of two, back-to-back, four-day conferences. Independent Sales Directors and Independent National Sales Directors offer leadership and motivation to the growing Mary Kay independent sales force that now exceeds 3 million Independent Beauty Consultants worldwide.
