Keynote Speakers:

For the first time since the Fast Track 50 added a keynote speaker to the event a few years ago, this year’s dinner guests will hear from two speakers during that part of the program.

It will be the husband-and-wife team of business owners Edward and Nancy Brown who are slated to discuss the topic of “Building a Valuable and Lasting Brand.”

Clearly, the Browns can speak knowledgeably on this subject, based on the success they’ve achieved in building Ladies & Gentlemen and Brown Aveda into highly recognized brands in the Northeast Ohio beauty industry.

Nancy Brown serves as president and Edward Brown is chief financial officer for entities that the couple own: Ladies & Gentlemen Salon and Spa locations in Mentor and Legacy Village in Lyndhurst; three cosmetology, esthetics and manicuring beauty schools — Brown Aveda Institutes in Mentor and Strongsville, and Casal Aveda Institute Austintown; and the Aveda Experience Center at Summit Mall in Fairlawn.

A total of about 240 people work for Edward and Nancy Brown in their commercial and educational enterprises. Meanwhile, their three schools enroll about 100 students each, and collectively, about 85 percent of graduates of the Brown Aveda and Casal Aveda institutes secure employment in the beauty industry.

We’re very excited to hear what the Browns have in store for us. to learn more bout the Browns’ story, click here.
