About Mary Palmieri
From insider to influencer to innovator, CEO Mary Palmieri is both the beauty and the brains behind The Beauty Marketplace. A graduate of Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, Mary completed advanced studies at Columbia University.
A natural-born entrepreneur, Mary created the first B2B beauty industry blog, Honest Beauty, in 2009 that ran for seven years. It was here that she met everyone who was anyone in the traditional and indie beauty arenas. Here she launched the "Breakout Brand of the Month", in-depth explorations of a company's founders, culture, marketing, manufacturing and technology. Honest Beauty became the content portal for HBA Global, one of the largest product development tradeshows for beauty in North America.
In 2017, Mary relocated from the East Coast to Silicon Valley in preparation of the 2018 online launch of The Beauty Marketplace.
"For me," says Mary Palmieri, "Beauty is all about celebrating a person's unique individuality. Today, indie brands - and the innovators and entrepreneurs behind them - capture the real spirit of this celebration."
