On Friday, September 15, we celebrated the opening of our newest market: Mary Kay Peru! Executives from our corporate and Latin America teams, and the independent salesforce from our global leadership development program (GLDP), joined our brand-new Peru team to mark this milestone event with a ribbon-cutting ceremony in the country’s capital, Lima.
The atmosphere of the day was festive. The teams worked hard for months and took care of every detail to show our guests the warmth of the Peruvian culture as well as the welcoming nature of our Mary Kay family. We received our guests with a tour of our new modern offices, located in the Miraflores area, home of many global headquarters of prominent companies like Mary Kay.
The traditional ribbon-cutting was the highlight of the day. We had U.S.-based executives and Latin America executives cut the first ribbon, followed by our amazing independent salesforce, and then my team in Marketing, Sales, Finance, Operations and Administration. We were all so excited to be part of the official ceremony—we will forever treasure the portion of the ribbon we cut.
After the office was officially open, we toasted to pink lemonade and had a traditional Peruvian lunch serenaded by a band playing Peruvian favorites. The most talked about during the event were the Peruvian desserts. And if our road to success in Peru tastes like the Suspiro de Limeña, our future in Peru will be sweet.
