Antony Strianese new MD for ghd UK & Ireland

Thursday, 30 August 2018 10:38

The appointment Antony Strianese heralds a return to the hair industry, in which he'd spent nearly a decade before accepting a more recent move into the FMCG sector.

Most recently Antony held the position of President and Managing Director of Barilla, a FMCG company based in Japan. During his tenure he turned around the fortunes of the company, creating double digit growth and securing multi-channel market expansion. Antony is a skilled boardroom negotiator with experience of domestic as well as international markets. A strategic thinker who understands the value of a strong senior management team, Antony’s vision will ensure continued success for ghd. 

“I am delighted to make this move to Britain with my family: I certainly feel privileged to be in a position to lead this world-renowned business here in the UK and across Ireland," Antony commented. "ghd is an iconic brand and a leader within the professional hair tool category, known for its cutting-edge technology and ability to empower those who use it - values which resonate acutely in today’s society and are incredibly important.Having worked within the industry for many years I have gained valuable insight into the complexities of this beautiful trade: the characters, the events, the innovations and of course, at the heart of it, the community. I look forward to making the acquaintance of many new hairdressing friends at forthcoming industry shows and events.” 

Antony takes the strong legacy of growth and industry relations embedded by the outgoing Managing Director, Nick Higgins.
