Promotion received

PLATTSBURGH — Aimee Wilkins of Lake Placid has been promoted to national vice president, independent consultant, effective Jan. 1  at Arbonne International.

Arbonne is a privately owned network marketing company. Since 1980, Arbonne has produced skin-care products based on botanical principles. These products are now shared throughout the world through Arbonne’s network of independent consultants. Arbonne’s product line has since grown to include both inner and outer health and beauty products that have the highest standards in quality, value and results.

Arbonne has a worldwide sales force of approximately 60,000 independent consultants. National vice presidents comprise approximately 1 percent of the sales force and are the leaders of the company.

Wilkins began her business as an Arbonne independent consultant in May 2005, became a regional vice president in Sept. 2006 and completed the qualification requirements to become a national vice president, the highest level attainable, on Dec. 31, 2011. She teaches and trains other like-minded entrepreneurs to start their own business.

Wilkins has also earned many additional perks over the past several years including Mercedes Benz bonuses, yearly tropical vacations and now a yearly trip to Maui for herself and her husband. She just returned from Arbonne’s 2012 Global Training Conference in Las Vegas where she was honored for becoming a national vice president and for promoting two new regional vice presidents in her successline. Twenty-eight other women were similarly promoted from Arbonne’s worldwide sales force in the past year.
