LEHI, Utah, Sept. 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Two employees from Nature's Sunshine, a leading natural health and wellness company, won Stevie® Awards for Women in Business.
Kelly Rich, Vice President of U.S. Sales, received a Gold Stevie Award for Female Executive of the Year, and Tracee Comstock, Vice President of Human Resources, received a Silver Stevie Award for Lifetime Achievement.
The Stevie Awards for Women in Business recognize the achievements of women executives, entrepreneurs, and the organizations they run, and are open to organizations worldwide.
"Kelly's leadership and steady guidance were instrumental in realizing the most significant and ambitious transformation in Nature's Sunshine's nearly 50-year history," said Eddie Silcock, EVP and President of Nature's Sunshine North America. "Her performance and the results she delivered—particularly in the midst of the challenges of a pandemic—have been nothing short of remarkable. We are proud to have her on the team and heartily congratulate her selection as Executive of the Year."
"Tracee is an exceptional leader," said Terrence Moorehead, President and CEO of Nature's Sunshine. "Her experience and leadership were pivotal in helping to transform our company to become more profitable. She worked with her team to create our Total and Wellness Rewards initiatives, as well as improve cross-functional collaboration and communication throughout the Company. She also led our COVID-19 initiatives to protect our team and increase productivity during the pandemic. These efforts paid off, as we realized our most successful year ever in the Company's 50-year history. We're excited to celebrate this award with her and recognize the tremendous accomplishments she's realized throughout her career."
"We thought the remarkable stories of achievement we saw in last year's awards couldn't be topped, but we were wrong. Women-owned and -run organizations have contributed significantly to the increase in innovation and entrepreneurial activity we've seen globally since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic," said Maggie Gallagher Miller, president of the Stevie Awards. "The nominations submitted to the 18th Stevie Awards for Women in Business that attest to this are inspiring, humbling, and motivating."
