Cory Couts, president & CEO of KPSS, Inc. has announced that John Moroney has been named Vice President of Education, with the mission of leading the education efforts of both the Goldwell and KMS California brands in North America. “When I took on the role to lead this company one month ago, I made a promise to myself and to my team that we would assemble the best and the brightest to help make the dreams of salons, stylists and our organization a reality,” Couts said. “John clearly fits that bill. He is professional salon education personified.” Moroney has 25 years of experience in the professional beauty industry, with roles at brands like Aveda, Sebastian and Wella, and positions ranging from stylist and salon owner to educator and marketing/sales executive.
“The opportunity to be part of a new, progressive management team that is focused on getting closer to the professional stylist in order to help build salon success is very exciting,” Moroney said. “The combination of world-class brands, leadership with real-life salon experience and the ability to be agile and responsive to salons’ needs is exactly what makes this company where I want to be at this stage in my career. When I heard Cory’s vision for the company, I knew I wanted to take this journey.”
