John Heffner Joins Drybar as Chief Executive Officer
Drybar, the nation's premier blow dry bars specializing in just blowouts, appointed John Heffner as chief executive officer, while cofounder and current CEO Michael Landau remains active in the company, serving as executive chairman of the board of directors. “One of the many things that attracted us to John is his experience nurturing and growing world-class consumer product companies,” says Alli Webb, Drybar cofounder and chief creative officer. “I am so excited to have John join our team.” Heffner was previously the president of OPI, a global leader in professional nailcare. Prior to OPI, he was the president and CEO of Creative Nail Design (CND), and has also held a variety of positions at Unilever and Procter & Gamble. “We could not be more thrilled to have John join our growing team,” said Landau. “With almost 2,000 employees and approaching 40 locations, John’s leadership experience will be critical in taking Drybar to the next level of growth.” Since 2010, Drybar has expanded from four stores in Los Angles to 32 locations throughout California, New York, Texas, Arizona, Georgia, Massachusetts, and Washington, DC. The company also recently launched a line of styling products and tools available at Sephora, QVC, and Drybar locations.
