Salon Success Academy Announces Jeff Gross as New Director of Marketing
Salon Success Academy is excited to name Jeff Gross as the school’s new Director of Marketing. Jeff has had a life long association with the school which was founded by his grandfather and is currently owned by his father Robert Gross. Throughout the years, Jeff has had some intensive hands-on training, holding many positions with Salon Success Academy including High School Outreach Coordinator and most recently Facilities Manager. His elevation to Director of Marketing came after a two-year off-campus apprenticeship where Jeff said he learned from a master about the art of effective marketing and networking.
Jeff is proud that he learned the ropes of the businesses by those who built it from the ground up and he intends to hold true to the philosophical bent of his grandfather, dad, and uncle.
“I want Salon Success Academy to continue to be what my dad and my grandfather dreamed it to be,” said Jeff. “This really is a people-helping company that trains its graduates to be successful in the cosmetology industry. We care about our students when they’re here, but even long after they leave our campuses.”
While holding on to the traditions of the past, Jeff also said he has a vision to take Salon Success Academy into the future. Acknowledging that the beauty industry is ever-changing, Jeff believes that those who intend to educate today’s stylists need to remain at the forefront of the industry.
“I know what’s trending in contemporary salons and I understand how to meet the needs of our demographic,” said Jeff. He has also forged a real connection with the Salon Success Academy students. Already a constant presence on campus, as Director of Marketing, Jeff intends to do even more. He wants to take his knowledge and exuberance and attach it to a strategic plan to develop a marketing program that will send the message that Salon Success Academy is on the cutting edge of cosmetology education.
“There will be a lot of new and exciting changes coming to Salon Success Academy, all of them for the better,” said Jeff.
As Jeff transitions to his new role, he remains actively involved in all aspects of Salon Success Academy — and he doesn’t mind it at all. Jeff is passionate about the school, its mission, what it does for students and where it is going.
“I am just very excited to come to work every morning,” said Jeff. And Jeff intends to ensure that Salon Success Academy is a place where students feel the same way.
