On The Scene

The Bronner Bros. was joined by more than 100 VIPs, business leaders and beauty industry influencers for a special presentation of the Phoenix Award at its southwest Atlanta factory. Presented by Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, the family matriarch, Mrs. Robbie Bronner, proudly accepted the city’s highest honor for the 70th anniversary of its semi-annual beauty short. Mrs. Bronner’s sons Nathaniel Jr., Bishop Dale, Charles, Bernard, James, their spouses and loyal employees were also in attendance.

After a heartfelt introduction by Arthur Bronner, III, “Mother Bronner” (as she is affectionately called), humored guests with dating advice and the story of how she met her husband—company co-founder, Dr. Nathaniel H. Bronner, Sr. While Mother Bronner has long shunned the public spotlight, she is referred as a woman of faith who quietly has served as a driving force behind the Bronner Bros.’ brand.

“From the 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.” Immediately following the formal presentation, guests mingled and Mayor Reed was given a behind-the-scenes tour of the factory. The state-of-the-art facility is located next door to the future home of Bronner Bros.’ new international headquarters, which will open its door later this year. “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.”
