Salon/Spa Leadership Council welcomes Scott Buchanan
Sep '08
The Professional Beauty Association (PBA) announces the newly elected Governing and Leadership Councils that will continue to shape and guide the association through the coming year. Comprised of highly-respected beauty professionals representing a broad spectrum of the beauty industry, all terms officially begin September 1, 2008 and will expire on August 31, 2009. PBA extends its appreciation to all the council members who have stepped forward and offered their time, energy and expertise for the greater good of the industry.

The composition of PBA's governing bodies consists of the three Leadership Councils: Manufacturer/Rep, Distributor/Store and Salon/Spa. Each council in turn elects three members to serve on the Governing Council. Each of the respective Leadership Councils are charged with addressing the needs and issues of their respective area of focus, while the Governing Council oversees budgeting, legislation endorsement, strategic planning and addresses issues that affect the industry as whole. It is the mission of all council members to enhance the power, performance and perception of PBA and the professional beauty industry.

The Manufacturer/Manufacturer Rep Leadership Council has elected Brian Graham of Nioxin to serve as President, Kevin Otero of Procter & Gamble as Vice President, Ray Mager as Secretary/Treasurer and Bruce Selan as the section's Governing Council Appointee. Newly elected to the Manufacturer Leadership Council are Gary Call of Beautopia and FJ Ligouri of Scruples.

The Distributor/Retail Beauty Store Leadership Council has re-elected Sydney Berry of Salon Services & Supplies as President, Josh Hafetz of The Raylon Corporation as Vice President and Edwin Neill of Neill Corporation to serve as the Secretary/Treasurer. Berry and Hafetz were chosen to represent the distributor section on the Governing Council. Renee Shakour of Essential Salon Products is also serving an inaugural term on this Leadership Council.

The Salon/Spa Leadership Council is pleased to re-elect NeCole Cumberlander of the Ohio Academy as President. Serena Chreky of Andre Chreky, The Salon Spa, will serve as Vice President, Cary O'Brien of Cary O'Brien's Design & Color Spa as VP of Education and John Galietti of Xena's Beauty Company as VP of Communications. John Galietti has also been reappointed to the Governing Council. The Salon/Spa Leadership Council welcomes Scott Buchanan as a new board member.

Lastly, George Schaeffer of OPI has been re-appointed as one of three PBA representatives to the North American Beauty Events (NABE) board. Schaeffer, who has been an active member of PBA's Governing Councils, will start his term on September 1, 2008 and will serve through August 31, 2011. NABE is the collective partnership between PBA and SoGeCos, who together are responsible for the Cosmoprof North America trade show.

PBA encourages industry professionals to join PBA and take an active role in the association. PBA is led by industry volunteers and represents the interests of the professional beauty industry. In addition to the Governing and Leadership Councils, volunteer members can also serve on committees to support the association's activities by helping to plan events, direct government affairs activities and more.
