Keune Haircosmetics USA hosted its 2013 distributor meeting and Evolution Education event in Orlando in March. The company recognized the contributions of its distributor network with awards that were presented by CEO George Keune, Chief Operating Officer Andrew Biazis and National Sales Manager Mark Webber

“Every 25 years, there is a shift in the professional salon industry when independently owned, entrepreneurial companies emerge to establish a leadership role,” said Biazis. “As a family-owned company with true global strength in the marketplace, we have the opportunity of working with our distributors to leverage the current state of the industry by working more closely with hairdressers and staying close to the true needs of salons. By focusing on that mission together, we will double the size of Keune USA over the next three years.”
