To commemorate this event, Nerium presented Big Brothers Big Sisters with a $1,000,000 check symbolizing its yearlong fundraising effort, during the company’s national Get Real Conference in Long Beach, CA on October 24.

Trévo Corporate Office Finds New Home

As Trévo’s product sales and network marketing figures continue to trend upward, the company itself is also moving up – literally.
Trévo has officially outgrown the south Oklahoma City office it has occupied since 2010, and is heading east down Interstate 44 to Valliance Bank Tower, where it will call the entire 18th floor home.
“Obviously this building holds a special place in the hearts of the people who started with Trévo here, but we are thrilled about the move,” Trévo CEO Mark Stevens said. “As our operations have expanded, so has our corporate staff, and we simply outgrew the walls at our current location.”
Located at 1601 Northwest Expressway, Valliance Bank tower is the tallest building in Oklahoma City’s Northwest Business District. With 22 floors offering a 360-degree view of the city, the tower is the most prominent landmark in the area.
Stevens prides himself on being a high-energy CEO with a team that has taken that same approach to business, so a move to one of the busiest and most fast-paced business districts in Oklahoma City makes perfect sense for Trévo. The tower is located off the interstate just walking distance from 50 Penn Place, an upscale galleria-style development, Penn Square Mall,
