Bosley Professional Strength announces major shifts in leadership, beginning with the appointment of Ian Murphy as its new President.
Murphy is a seasoned beauty business executive, having worked in virtually every discipline from Marketing to Sales to International Business Development for industry giants such as Redken, Wella, Garnier and Bio Ionic, to name a few.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Ian to the Bosley team,” said Rick Hough, principal owner of the Bosley Haircare Products Company. “Bosley’s impressive medical direction has enabled development of the Bosley Professional Strength hair care portfolio of products for both men and women concerned about hair loss. That combined with our comprehensive formulation and manufacturing capabilities provide a unique value proposition to its customers in a category with strong tailwinds. We look forward to taking this business to the next phase of growth under Ian’s leadership.”
Murphy says “having co-created the Bosley Pro Line 10 years ago, this is a personal home-coming. The space has changed dramatically over the past decade, with new channels and new players in the game. We need to play where the consumer shops and bring Bosley Doctor competency to answer her or his thinning hair needs. In 2020, look to Bosley, the thinning hair authority, for the comprehensive solution to thicker, fuller hair and scalp health.”
Bosley Professional Strength has retained Martin Flaherty as a consultant to assist Ian with distribution strategy. Marty is a veteran of over 40 years in the beauty industry. He is a “jack of all trades," having worked many different disciplines in major manufacturing companies including Avon, L'Oreal, Estee Lauder and Revlon.
In addition to Murphy and Flaherty, Mia Jenner has joined the team as VP of Marketing and Product Development, bringing nearly 20 years of marketing experience in the beauty and wellness category from brands such as Dermalogica, ORLY/SpaRitual, ghd Hair and Toppik/X-Fusion. Jenner has successfully launched four brands during her career, three of which she co-created, winning numerous product innovation awards.
Rounding out the new team driving growth at Bosley Pro is Chona Lopez who has been appointed Director, Operations & Finance. Lopez has enjoyed a successful 20+ year track record within the hair care category, contributing to the success of Sexy Hair Concepts and recently Henkel.
