Andre Chiavelli has been appointed the executive vice president of global corporate strategy at Farouk Systems. Chiavelli, a beauty industry veteran, joins Farouk from Emiliani Enterprises, where he served as the executive vice president of sales, corporate strategy, education and shows for 12 years. “Andre brings the energy, passion and experience to Farouk Systems that will take us to the next level,” says Basim Shami, CEO of Farouk.
In his new role, Chiavelli will directly report to Shami and will develop strategic domestic and international plans supporting the company’s sales, education and promotional initiatives. According to Shami, Farouk plans to expand its professional programs and offer increased support for stylists with Chiavelli on board. “Hairdressers are the best artists in the world,” Shami says. “They can go onstage in front of thousands of people and create original works of art with their hands, right in front of you.” —Jennifer Barnes
