Two firms expected to bring 362 jobs to MiamiSource Miami Today – By Scott Blake

Two companies — one that’s moving to Miami and another that’s expanding in Coral Gables — are expected to add 362 jobs in coming years, the Beacon Council, Miami-Dade’s economic development agency, announced this week.
Lyoness Management Americas, an international shopping community and loyalty program for regional and international businesses, has leased 15,000 square feet of offices at 1450 Brickell Avenue in Miami’s financial district.
The office is to serve as a management center providing support to all Lyoness offices in the US and Canada as well as future locations in Latin America.
Lyoness Management Americas, a subsidiary of New York-based Lyoness America Inc., is part of parent company Lyoness International, headquartered in Austria.
In Miami, Lyoness is expected to add 287 jobs within three years and make a $4.5 million capital investment.
“Miami is an incredible cosmopolitan city,” Lyoness Americas CEO Mario Hoffmann said in a statement. “Its ongoing development as an international gateway is ideal in meeting the needs of Lyoness as we continue our expansion in North, South and Central America.
“Our Austrian headquarters serves as a diverse global community, and so will Miami,” Mr. Hoffmann added. “As we searched for a location to handle this part of the world, selecting the “Magic City’ was an obvious decision.”
Lyoness Americas Chief Operating Officer Angela Schadl said she was pleased by the decision “to make Miami our international headquarters for the Americas.”
The Beacon Council assisted Lyoness with state and local incentives and other information. Lyoness declined the state Qualified Targeted Industry tax refund because the timing for the approval did not match the company’s timeline for the decision. However, the firm is in the process of applying for a Quick Response Training Program state grant, the council said.
“More and more companies are viewing Miami-Dade County as a global business destination,” said Beacon Council CEO and President Frank Nero. (Read the Full Article Here)

Managing Director Joaquin Zeledon said “we are very enthusiastic regarding our decision to become part of Miami and South Florida. We look forward to meeting the myriad of businesses that join in commerce in this spectacular community.”

“Miami’s energy is like none other. Although the city bustles with activity, the people seem relaxed and extremely friendly. I am very pleased with our decision to make Miami our international headquarters for the Americas,” said Chief Operating Officer Angela Schadl.

The Beacon Council officials said to attract the firm they assisted Lyoness Management Americas with state and local incentives, labor, training and general community information. “More and more companies are viewing Miami-Dade County as a global business destination,” said Frank R. Nero, President and Chief Executive Officer of The Beacon Council.

  1. "Lyoness is a service-based company" – Lyoness is a company with no limits on the products it offers. They separate the "network" and the "market" unlike most MLMs with limited product spaces.

    "Complicated compensation structure" – go through the 10 member benefits 1 by 1 and contact me with the very first thing you found confusing.

    "Internet-based shopping companies" – Lyoness offers both online and offline shopping.

    Please re-do your review of Lyoness in light of the just-released new terms and conditions.

    • @Terrence,

      Great info. Once Kevin Grimes and the crew got involved, I have held off on any new reviews until I know all the changes have been implemented. Once that is done, I will be doing an update.

  2. Troy,

    Are you going to do any updates on Lyoness. I know this is the company that Dr. Keith Laggos said was a plan B option to Zeek Rewards. I do not know anything about the company, so I do not want to lump them in with Zeek Rewards. It just concerns me that I know a few Zeek affiliates that have joined Lyoness. Bab memories. Should I be concerned?

    • @Brad,

      I am waiting and watching as they make changes. Grimes & Reese were hired and are working with them on P&Ps and compensation structure from my understanding. I will cover more I am sure.
