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 takes over from Bruno Marc, and is the third female president to take the role. A popular choice for President, she brings a wide variety of skills to table, including business owner, visionary and creative talent. Having just completed a two year role as Chancellor of The Fellowship, Karine is an enthusiastic advocate for British hairdressing and her passion comes through in everything she does.
Karine says: “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 it’s 71st year, I’m looking forward to building on the brilliant foundations of the Fellowship to take it into the future.”
Former 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 she is driven by maintaining enormous value for the members and also to growing the membership throughout the UK and I have no doubt she will be hugely successful in this.”
Karine officially takes over the role at President’s Night on May 8th 2017, and will then work with Chairman Jo Martin and Vice-President Andreas Stavrou to ensure the growth and integrity of the Fellowship is as strong for the next generation of hairdressers as it has been for the past 70 years.
