Anna Ross, owner and director of Kester Black, has been named the winner of the 2016 Young Victorian Telstra Business Women’s Award at a lavish dinner at Peninsula Docklands in Melbourne.
The Telstra Business Women’s Awards are Australia’s longest running and most esteemed women’s awards program in Australia. They recognise and reward the courage, leadership and creativity of brilliant business women.
Joe Pollard, who hosted the event, said that the Victorian winners are exceptional business women. “The winners of the 2016 Telstra Victorian Business Women’s Awards are brilliant, passionate and courageous women who are thriving in their chosen fields. Not only do they have the courage to challenge the status quo but they also demonstrate exceptional business acumen and strong leadership skills,” Ms. Pollard said.
In 2012, Anna Ross founded Kester Black, a leading manicure and skincare brand built on beautiful design and uncompromising ethical values. Kester Black products are the first in the world to obtain such a vast suite of accreditations such as Choose Cruelty Free, International Cruelty Free, Vegan Society, Australian Made and B Corporation.
Anna is set to be a finalist for the National Awards, which will be held at a glittering Gala Dinner on the night of Wednesday 16 November 2016.
“In business, my beliefs manifest in a drive for innovation and establishing sustainable, ethical options for the consumer.” – Anna Ross
