Recap of the 2014 PBA Executive Summit

The first annual PBA Executive Summit hosted a sold-out crowd for this one-day event. It brought together 135 executives from top beauty companies, including Andis, DePasquale Salon Systems, Dermalogica, Joico, Matrix, OPI Products, Inc., Sally Beauty Supply, Ulta, Zotos and many more, to learn from leading business experts on how expanding technology and social connections has transformed marketing and communications in the beauty industry.

Moderating this inaugural summit was former CNN Anchor and NBC Correspondent Gene Randall, who has been front and center to chronicle global events over the course of his impressive career span. His keynote address praised PBA for its charity initiatives and dedication to bettering the beauty industry.

“Leadership conferences in my experience are almost always a profitable exercise because I find that people that come to these events are very serious about number one, joining the discussion and number two, learning from each other and learning from the presenters that are brought in as part of the program. I always welcome an event where people are very serious about their business and certainly this figures to be one of those,” said Randall.

“I’m really proud of PBA,” Jennifer Parks, Sr Vice President of National Account Sales with Sexy Hair said, “The first time out is very difficult to put on this kind of event and to have so many people in the room when I arrived…it was great because I knew 90% of those people.”
