Alexiou Gibson is the epitome of a successful black business owner who has grown his business into a multi-million dollar business. This makes it perfectly appropriate for Black PR Wire to profile this consummate professional during Black Business Month.
Gibson is the CEO and founder of Transformation Factory (TTF), a Florida-based company that produces a line of flavored sea moss.
The Grand Bahama native appeared on the popular show, shark tankand makes an unforgettable impression. shark tank, of course, is the platform for entrepreneurs to pitch and pitch their business ideas to successful tycoons in hopes of getting an investment in their concepts and ideas. Gibson was able to stand in front of powerful entrepreneurs such as Mark Cuban, Barbara Corcoran, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Greiner and guest “shark” Kevin Hart, and speak at their level.
In his “Sharks” speech, Gibson said his company made $3.5 million in revenue just 11 months after its inception, with a profit margin of 35%. He explained that everything was direct to consumer and 100% online. Gibson’s pitch worked and sold Cuban and Hart “Sharks” – resulting in TTF receiving a $600,000 contract with Shark Tank. Scoring the Shark Tank case was a big deal! It meant that after years of hard work and dedication, Gibson was well on the way to seeing his company’s mission come to fruition.
Today, he is fulfilling his dream, but Alexiou Gibson’s backstory is just as impressive as his Shark Tank pitch. The Transformation Factory is truly Gibson’s passion. He began his journey to transform his life and his body after his doctor told him he would not live to be thirty. Weighing over 500 lbs. at age 21, Gibson was told his body was in poor condition and was too far gone to make any significant changes to his health. At that time, his body was riddled with multiple chronic diseases. He also had breathing problems, which made it difficult to walk long distances. Although Gibson may have been overweight, luckily he was also an overachiever.
With his Sea Moss product, he completely changed his life and now lives a vegan lifestyle. He propels himself through dips and squats, and finds every opportunity he can to coach, inspire, and encourage. Its transformation is the result of hard work, determination and sheer ingenuity. He has created a life-changing Sea Moss product that provides a staggering amount of 92 of the body’s 102 essential minerals. Designed for everyone, it is vegan, paleo and keto-friendly.
The Wellington, Florida entrepreneur launched his line of sea moss health products because it’s considered nature’s most powerful superfood – and it’s helped transform his life . Gibson’s TTF offers nine flavors of Sea Moss Gel: Elderberry, Strawberry, Strawberry/Banana, Mango, Dragon Fruit, Goji Berry, Pineapple, Soursop (Guanabana), and Raw. Other products include sea moss capsules and wild (raw) Irish sea moss.
In addition to TTF, Gibson also owns a full-service production company called H.AM that has been in business for over eight years. However, now being the head of his new business, The Transformation Factory, he is able to follow his true passion. Since Gibson transformed his life with the Sea Moss product, he has been on a mission to coach, inspire and encourage others to transform theirs as well. Through TTF, Gibson helps motivate and inspire others on their journey, whatever that may be. Having lost over 300 pounds, he leads TTF as an extension of his own transformation from one who seeks answers to one who provides answers.
TTF is the culmination of over 10 years of fighting health issues. He used every disappointment, achievement, heartbreak, success and learning moment to create the concept of TTF as a resource and inspiration for those trying to become their best selves. The TTF website serves as a repository of information, tools, support communities and products to help the community chart its own course.
Without a doubt, Alexiou Gibson is a business mogul in his own right. Passionate about setting the community on a positive path, he is committed to championing the importance of health and awareness. The processing plant will continue to transform lives and is surely positioned for exponential growth.
