The Fellowship is delighted to announce that Karine Jackson has been appointed as the new President, a tenure that runs from April 2017 to April 2019.
Karine is the third female President to take this esteemed role. A popular choice for President, with a unanimous vote from the AGM, Karine brings a multitude of skills to this role: business owner, visionary and creative talent in her own right, and of course her own brand of energy.
With a passion for taking the highest levels of education, inspiration and connections to The Fellowship membership that is formed of top hairdressers in Britain, having just completed a two year role as Chancellor, Karine is an ardent advocate for British hairdressing and this passion comes through in all that she embraces.
I’m really looking forward to this new role, it’s a real honour for me. I can’t wait to get started, working closely with the team and council to promote the hairdressing industry and our professional standards. Now in its 71st year, I’m looking forward to building on the brilliant foundations of the Fellowship to take it into the future.
Outgoing President Bruno Marc said,
I can’t think of a better president to hand over the baton to. Karine has been an amazing asset to The Fellowship, she has huge energy and vision for the next phase and is driven by maintaining enormous value for the members and also to growing the membership throughout the UK. I have no doubt she will be hugely successful in this.
Karine officially takes on the role at the President’s Night on May 8th. Karine will work closely with the Fellowship Council and Finance and Events Committees to ensure the growth, integrity and relevance of the Fellowship is as strong for the next generation of hairdressers as it has been for the past seven decades.
