KAO NAME GLOBAL DIRECTOR OF PORTFOLIO EDUCATION
John Moroney, Vice President of Education and Global Creative Director of Kao Salon Division is pleased to announce that Stephanie Bruce has been named Global Director of Portfolio Education for the Goldwell and KMS brands. Stephanie will work between the London office and HQ in Darmstadt and will be responsible for leading the global education teams for both highly-coveted brands, as well as the overall strategy for the 26 Goldwell/KMS Academies worldwide.
Stephanie’s career spans 30 years as a professional hairstylist and educator. As the former head of technical education for a top global colour company, she has worked extensively with stylists and salons from her native United Kingdom and around the world while also bringing her keen insights to product development and maximizing marketing messages to hairdressers.
In her new role for Goldwell and KMS, Stephanie will oversee the design and delivery of global education programs for Kao Salon Division, such as the Goldwell Global Master Series—which includes the successful Goldwell Master Colorist Program and the newly-launched Goldwell Master Stylist Program—as well as the innovative KMS IQ Cutting and Styling programs.
Stephanie will work closely with her new teams to partner with Marketing and R&D to help further develop Kao Salon Division’s innovative offering and more fully serve salons and their clients. Says Stephanie of her new role, “I’m thrilled to be joining the Kao Salon Global Team. The Goldwell and KMS brands are known leaders in partnering with salons for quality education and artistry. My commitment is, and always will be, to spark inspiration and further education for the stylists who put their heart and soul into every client’s service.”
“I have never met a successful stylist that wanted to stop learning or being inspired,” John Moroney, Vice President of Education and Global Creative Director for Kao Salon Division explains. “It’s one of the things that all successful stylists have in common and why education plays such a key role in our strategy and success. Stephanie is the right person at the right time to help us reach the next level in partnering with the right salons, offering them our entire portfolio and helping them grow their business.”
