The Bronner Bros. and 100 VIPs, business leaders and beauty industry influencers gathered for a special presentation of the Phoenix Award at its southwest Atlanta factory. Atlanta’s Mayor Kasim Reed presented, the family matriarch, Mrs. Robbie Bronner, and she proudly accepted the city’s highest honor for the 70th anniversary of its semi-annual beauty show. Sons Nathaniel Jr., Bishop Dale, Charles, Bernard, James, their spouses and loyal employees also attended.

“From the very beginning, my father had a clear vision,” said James Bronner, SVP of trade show operations. “To uplift our community by creating business opportunities and a platform for celebrating African American beauty. It is quite an honor to be recognized and witness our mother accept the equivalent to the key to the city.”

“Because of Bronner Bros., today thousands of stylists, barbers, and multicultural beauty brands can have a seat at the table,” added show manager, Erika Respress. “As we celebrate 70 years of excellence in beauty, we are grateful to be a part of such a rich legacy and remain committed to ensuring its continued success.”
