Alberto Cirillo, CCP

His 37 combined years in the Cosmetology industry have given him a unique perspective as both a salon owner and a coach. After running a business for 28 years, he has gained copious amounts of knowledge that have led him to begin teaching other salon owners throughout North America how to run a successful business. He has given them the tools needed, teaching them systems that can be implemented in their salons to grow a successful business. These systems include marketing, client retention, employee management, and financial management.


Alberto's past board experiences include the involvement on the Administrative Council of the Italian Mutual Aid Society in the capacities of Vice President, Secretary Treasurer and Event’s Co-ordinator. This has led him to become well versed in decision making in a team setting, and to undertake responsibilities where needed.



Launie Morgan, CCP 

Launie has been active in the Cosmetology Industry for over 30 years as a professional in her trade as well as instruction in schools for over 20 of those years, with her presently managing the operations of Mark Anthony Academy of Cosmetology.


Launie has been a member with Beauty Council since moving here from Alberta in 1996, in Esthetics and Nail Technology.  


She takes great pride in saying, “We need to stand together to gain back the dignity and pride we once held in this industry and build back the confidence we need with our customers.” 


Launie is a strong believer in regulation of this Industry even if it means self-regulation.
