The opening event
The Mannatech Singapore Business Centre is open! At 1pm on Saturday 27th September 2014 the ribbon was cut to launch a new era in Mannatech Singapore’s prestigious history. The opening represents a strategic move in the expansion of Mannatech’s Australasian operations in response to significant business growth in Singapore. According to The Global Competitiveness Index 2013–2014, Singapore rates second only to Switzerland in economic performance among the top ten countries globally.
Mannatech CEO Dr Robert Sinnott, President Al Bala and International Operations Manager Jobina Ho, as well as Double Silver Presidential Director Carolyn Jones, Bronze Presidential Directors Chris Gregory and Lydia Leong and Presidential Directors Philip Loong and Annie Goh were all on hand to help celebrate the event. Also in attendance was Silver Presidential Director Amy Liu from Hong Kong. Everyone was impressed by the sleek decor and bright Mannatech branding and furnishings.
“We’re excited about this new opening in Singapore and we are fully committed to supporting this market,” said Mannatech President, Al Bala. “This new business center is a symbol of that commitment, and what we hope will be a stepping stone to even higher levels of success.”
The strong turnout included a select group of 80 Mannatech Associates, VIP guests and local press. Cosmetics Design Asia – the leading cosmetics website in the Asia-Pacific region – ran a feature on the opening three days prior which helped to drum up even more interest for this already highly anticipated event.
After the official opening, Mannatech Singapore hosted its first order of business: an exclusive presentation featuring Dr Sinnott and Al Bala. Dr Sinnott discussed Real Food TechnologySM and Mannatech’s flagship product, Ambrotose® as well as why Mission 5 MillionSM continues to drive the heart and passion behind the company. Meanwhile, Al spoke about why now is the best time to join Mannatech as a business opportunity and the cutting-edge developments Mannatech is implementing to support business leaders in the field.
Business Development Manager Steve Foxwell, says “Wow what an exciting day for Mannatech Singapore!! We would like to thank all of our Singapore leaders who worked so hard with the corporate team to make all of this a possibility. It was such a great event with a real buzz in the air, everyone was very impressed and proud of the new Business Centre.
