International hair care brand Kevin.Murphy announces a major addition to its management team, naming Dawn Blackstone as Chief Marketing Officer of Cutter and Stiles/Kevin.Murphy, effective January 26, 2015.
With sales approaching $50 million this year and new brands being launched under the K.M name, Blackstone will play a crucial role in helping to grow Kevin.Murphy.
“I am extremely excited to have Dawn join the Kevin.Murphy team, where she will be met with an enthusiastic and warm welcome,” explains Cutter and Stiles/Kevin.Murphy CEO Rick Kornbluth. “Dawn is the consummate professional, bringing very strategic, process-driven decision making skills to the brand. She will undoubtedly lend a keen ear to the field, listening to the needs of our Distributors, Distributor Sales Consultants, Educators, Stylists and Consumers.”
Previously, Blackstone worked closely with Kornbluth at Graham Webb, helping to grow the brand from $50mm to over $80mm in three years. She then became part of the strategic leadership team of P&G Professional, leading to the international integration of Graham Webb. She went on to hold positions as the Vice President of Marketing for Herbalife, Dermalogica, and most recently, Chief Marketing Officer of ColorProof.
