You have to absolutely love what the Professional Beauty Association is doing with its first-ever Distributor Executive Conference in the Seattle area on April 3-4.

If you haven’t heard yet, this is a conference for professional-beauty independent distributors. No loud music, no suppliers, no manufacturers reps, no beauty-service professionals, no selling. It’s designed for indie distributors to talk among themselves in a business environment. What a fabulous idea!

What's John Maly Up to?

He’s a former megadistributor and now the owner/president of Mirabella Beauty Products. What else is he doing these days?

Back in October, Beauty Industry West—a trade association serving the cosmetics industry—held its monthly luncheon meeting in Los Angeles. The event was sponsored by the Independent Cosmetic Manufacturers and Distributors trade association, and the speaker that day to nearly 100 people was John Maly, now the owner/president of Mirabella Beauty Products and a second-generation icon in the professional-beauty industry.
