TELETIES Ranks 397th on 2021 INC5000 List
TELETIES, a fashion lifestyle brand best known for its strong-grip, no-rip hair ties that give back, has ranked 397th on the coveted INC5000 list.
"We're honored and excited to be part of the 2021 INC5000 list in our first year of eligibility,"
WBENC's national standard of certification, which TELETIES earned in 2021, is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection to confirm the business is majority owned, operated and controlled by a woman.
"We strive to be a trend leader in fashion-forward hair products for every woman," said Emily Parkins, VP of Business Development. "Premium partnerships, strategic alignments and creative collaborations have been instrumental in our growth."
"In the wake of the global pandemic, which shuttered local retailers and caused massive delays for global fulfillment, the TELETIES team experienced rapid growth," said Alyssa Brown, VP of Marketing. "The brand was able to rise above the challenges and pivot in the face of adversity to become an ecommerce powerhouse."
A commitment to corporate social responsibility, coupled with strategic hiring decisions focused on diversity and inclusion, have supported the brand's managed growth. New market diversification has further accelerated business success.
"Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we've lived through is just plain amazing," said Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. "This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people."
"Without our independent retailers, we would not be where we are today," said Allie Quinoy, VP of Sales. "With a shared vision and loyal teamwork, this designation gives credence to the old adage that you're only as good as the company you keep."
