Boldijarre Koronczay is the President of Eminence Organic Skin Care but more than that, he’s an esthetician and a philanthropist at heart. As a leukemia and cancer survivor himself, he is the founder of the Eminence Kids Foundation, an organization helping seriously ill children undergo treatments by donating healthy, organic meals and providing education on the importance of nutrition for the future of their health.
As a champion of preserving the environment, Boldijarre also founded the Forests for the Future™ initiative. Through this program, Eminence has planted a staggering 24 million trees sequestering 842,000 metric tons of C02 to date. In addition, the program has trained 1,849 framers and impacted 14,593 peoples' lives by breaking the cycle of hunger and poverty. Boldijarre also believes strongly in regenerative agriculture and a desire to leave the earth and soil in a better place for future generations to enjoy.
The Eminence brand was not an overnight success. Boldijarre started as an esthetician working in a treatment room. The brand gained popularity through Boldijarre’s dedication to educating people on the power of natural and organic ingredients. Boldijarre focused on using humor and light-hearted presentations to engage audiences of skin care professionals as passionate about skin care as he is. Today, he focuses more on his philanthropic initiatives. Boldijarre is renowned for being a visionary and pioneer who brought awareness to natural, organic, and biodynamic skin care in North America.
Attila grew up in Budapest, Hungary until he and his brother, Boldijarre, moved to Canada in 1996. With a degree in engineering, Attila plays a key role in the vision of Eminence’s ongoing commitment to the environment by ensuring all office and warehouses are dedicated to green practices. Attila led Eminence to become the first professional skin care company in the world to become a Certified B Corporation®, joining the leaders of the global movement using the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. His passion to make a lasting, positive impact on the world through responsible, conscious business drives Attila to be an active member of the B Corp community.
Attila is directly involved in the day-to-day operations of the business, often traveling to tradeshows and participating in charitable events. From the eco-friendly Vancouver office, Attila oversees the natural, organic and Biodynamic® farm production, product development, and manufacturing in Hungary. Attila personally visits the children at Semmelweis Children’s Hospital in Budapest for the award-winning Eminence Kids Foundation during his biannual visits to Hungary, serving them organic, cold-pressed juice and giving them gifts. He stays active, too, and likes to participate in the Ride to Conquer Cancer, an event and cause that is near to the hearts of both Attila and his brother. In 2011, he was awarded the Entrepreneur of the Year Award for Eminence’s contributions to the community and Province of British Columbia.
