National Salon Suite Parent Company of MY SALON Suite & Salon Plaza Appoints Kelly McCarthy to Support Rapid Growth

October 24, 2018 // // NEW ORLEANS - Suite Management Franchising, the nation’s premier salon suite franchise housing both MY SALON Suite and Salon Plaza, announced today its appointment of seasoned beauty industry professional Kelly McCarthy to Director of Training and Development.

After 28 years in salon sales and education for some of the most reputable nail, skin and hair brand manufacturers and distributors, McCarthy joins Suite Management Franchising with tremendous knowledge and mentorship skills. Building on the momentum of the brand’s 100th opening, her role aims to further inspire growth and success for the Franchise Owners and Members (independent salon owners) of MY SALON Suite and Salon Plaza.

“This is an incredible opportunity for me to establish new roots with Suite Management Franchising,” said McCarthy. “MY SALON Suite and Salon Plaza are unique concepts that are disrupting the traditional salon industry, and I couldn’t be more excited to help the brands establish presence in additional markets across the country. I’m joining an ambitious team, and together I foresee us having a record breaking year.

Prior to Suite Management Franchising, McCarthy’s successful salon career introduced her to alternative paths within the beauty industry, including leading sales and education initiatives for notable brands such as Redken, Matrix, Goldwell and John Paul Mitchell Systems.

After 16 years in professional salon sales and education through distributors, McCarthy brought her expertise to cosmetology schools, dedicating time toward leading, coaching and mentoring Paul Mitchell School Future Professionals and Team Members. Continuing to share her passion for the industry, she also joined Paul Mitchell Advanced Education to assist in educating and mentoring others through the franchise’s Corporate Training programs.

“Kelly’s industry experience, mixed with her passion and professionalism, makes her the perfect addition to our leadership team,” said Ken McAllister, CEO of Suite Management Franchising and president of MY SALON Suite. “As we continue to further cement ourselves as a key player in the health and beauty industries, we need the strongest team, and I’m confident we are on the right path.”

With McCarthy’s leadership and support, the MY SALON Suite and Salon Plaza brands plan to add 200 franchise partners and 300 units over the next few years. Expanding at a rapid rate of one new location opening per week, MY SALON Suite currently has 35 currently in development and 50 more in the site selection phase.
