The end of the year is often a time of reflection and introspection. As I look back on 2015, I am overwhelmed by our accomplishments as a company, and I am grateful to be part of the good that comes with what ASEA offers.
What a great year it’s been! We celebrated our five-year milestone to the fullest during convention, and we also made ASEA history with several momentous achievements. Over the course of 2015, ASEA received recognition from outside sources, launched new messaging, further validated the science behind our redox signaling technology, and continued our global expansion.
Earlier this year, Direct Selling News recognized ASEA as one of the top 100 companies; we were in the top 50 in North America. We made the Utah Business Fast 50 list as one of the fastest growing companies in the state of Utah. In addition, UtahBusiness.com named ASEA one of the best companies to work for.
We saw the retirement of our beloved founder Verdis Norton this year. We celebrated his leadership in Cancun with top associates at an unforgettable retreat. He was honored again with all of corporate and the field in attendance at International Convention.
Exciting announcements abounded, from compensation plan enhancements to new branding and tools to validating research. From new studies on RENU 28 to validation of redox signaling molecules in our products from BioAgilytix to our processing plant being NSF certified, we have seen proof of the strength of redox signaling technology.
Another one of our achievements this year was our new Guadalajara, Mexico office opening, announced at Mexico’s one-year anniversary celebration. This dynamic market is already ASEA’s second largest.
And of course, we can’t forget the most important highlight: you. We have seen so much growth, with a record number of new Diamonds and other executive ranks. This growth is the result of thousands of people working together to improve their lives and the lives of many others.
We encourage you to continue to share ASEA, its products, and its message and close out 2015 strong. We can’t help but express gratitude to our associates for making possible all that we achieve together, but most of all, for the lives that are touched across the globe.
You are the miracle of ASEA, and that is what will go forth in 2016. We have a solid infrastructure and exciting strategies in place and look forward to continued growth and expansion.
