In the early 90’s, Marion worked as a voice specialist and was considered one of the country’s leading experts. Then, in 1997, she changed her career path and started Elizabeth Grant International in her North Toronto home, a company that now sells its luxury skin care products on shopping channels around the world. The business has experienced steady growth since its inception and has grown to a corporation that now employs over 100 employees in a 50,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility.

Marion’s vision for the future involves seeing the skin care products becoming a household name brand that will be widely available through traditional retail outlets around the world.

She has received great recognition for her strong and successful entrepreneurial abilities. In May 2006, Marion was selected by the City of Toronto to be a part of the city wide poster campaign, We Build This City, which recognized the experiences of Toronto's most talented and skilled business leaders. She is considered one of Canada’s top women entrepreneurs, having been recognized on the Profit W100’s ranking for last five consecutive years. This year, Marion is honoured to receive a WXN Top 100 award.

Marion Witz has led Elizabeth Grant International to experience tremendous growth, rapidly expanding and delivering its world class products into foreign markets and becoming a multi-million-dollar enterprise. At the same time, Marion dedicates a great deal of effort and resources to charitable organizations, specifically cancer related fundraising and associated programs.

“Every year, we honour the exceptional female leaders of Canada,” said Pamela Jeffery, Founder, Women’s Executive Network. “They each have remarkable achievements and Top 100 is a mark of their success and how they have supported their communities, companies, and organizations. Our Top 100 community is a powerful group of women who are at the top of their game, exemplify success and empower the next generation of women to take their careers to the next level.”

La Moustache for a Good Cause

This past Friday night out on the town established just what we’d been hoping- that there are a lot of men out there willing to (slightly) modify their good looks for a good cause. Everywhere we turned, guys were sporting the early signs of a growing moustache. Strange normally, yes- but not this month. If you haven’t already heard about Movember, click here to read about the month long initiative that gets men growing ‘staches to raise funds and awareness for Prostate Cancer.

The Torricelumn Girls have to admit that these men actually looked really good. We were so happy to see that Movember and its appeal is truly spreading. Congrats guys! Consider us your ‘MoSisters’- the term coined for the women supporting the do-good men growing moustaches for Movember.

Elizabeth Grant Skin Care is also doing its part to support Movember. Throughout November- Prostate Cancer Awareness month- Elizabeth Grant Skin Care will donate 50% of proceeds from web sales at of the Grant for Men After Shave Soothing Serum to the Movember Foundation.

The After Shave Soothing Serum is the perfect way wrap up a month long moustache grow session- it refreshes, soothes, and softens the skin after shaving and it also helps reduce redness and irritation.

Elizabeth Grant Skin Care’s Spokesmodel- Hofit Golan

If you’ve been an avid reader of the Torricelumn Girl Blog, you’re likely already familiar with our beautiful spokesmodel, Hofit Golan. For our newer readers – just have a look through the website and you’ll see some of the work we have done with Hofit. We’ve done many glamorous photo shoots with Hofit around the world and the pictures always turn out incredible.

This is one of the most famous pictures we’ve captured of Hofit for Elizabeth Grant Skin Care.  The shoot took place at the Blake’s Hotel in London with photographer John Oakley.  This image has been used in Elizabeth Grant advertisements placed in international luxury magazines and it was also recently featured in a Harper’s Bazaar article.

Of course, to be the Elizabeth Grant spokesmodel- you can’t just be a pretty face- and Hofit certainly proves that.  One of the busiest women we know, Hofit is also the face of OK! TV in the UK, the host of FTV worldwide, and a fashion designer.  She is constantly jetting off to the most exclusive and fascinating places, meeting the type of people that regular folks can only dream of schmoozing with.  Hofit is also heavily involved in the charity circuit and is proud to be an ambassador for the Global Angel’s Foundation.

From London to Japan to Africa, Hofit is often followed by a camera crew to provide glamorous, chic, and fashionable clips for FTV.  Be ready for some humour too, as Hofit’s sense of wit is also always present in her work.

We’ll start posting some of her travels and FTV clips here on the blog.  So be sure to check back often to see what’s happening in the fabulous world of Elizabeth Grant’s beautiful spokesmodel.
