Revel Nail, a company specializing in nail dip powders, had its founders, Keeli Malone, Phon Malone, Monica Sutton, and Reed Sutton, recognized in Ernst & Young LLP’s Entrepreneur of the Year®2020 Greater Philadelphia Awards.

In its 34th Entrepreneur of the Year® National Awards, Ernst & Young honors successful business leaders whose ambitions deliver innovation, growth, and prosperity as they build and sustain groundbreaking companies that transform our world. Winners join the ranks of a lifelong community of esteemed Entrepreneur of the Year alumni from around the world. 

“It’s a true honor to receive an award that recognizes our growth trajectory at Revel Nail,” said Monica Sutton, Vice President of Business Development at Revel Nail. “It wasn’t long ago the four of us were all discussing Revel Nail as just an idea. The reality is even better than any of us could’ve dreamed.”

Finalists for the Entrepreneur of the Year® awards are evaluated based on the following six criteria: overcoming adversity; financial performance; societal impact and commitment to building a values-based company; innovation; and talent management. Since its launch, the program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities in more than 60 countries throughout the world.

“Revel Nail began as just the four of us, and now we have more than 200 employees,” said Phon Malone, CEO. “I’m blessed to have a balanced work and home life, and to work alongside my best friends. It’s the transparency and confidence I have working alongside my friends that have helped Revel Nail grow into the company that it is today.”

Congratulations to the founders of Revel Nail! Long may your success continue!
