Founder Returns To Farouk Systems

April 11, 2016

Chairman and CEO is back in action with son.

Farouk Systems welcomed back founder Farouk Shami as chairman and CEO.  After a short retirement, Shami realized his passion for the beauty industry and his fellow hairdressers was far more important to him than anything else. He has devoted the past 50 years of his life to developing new products and bringing new advanced American technology to the industry.

With this change, Shami will return to what he loves best: working hard to create a safer and healthier work place and environment for both stylists and consumers. He has been a longtime activist bringing forth changes and developing new lines that improve not only the integrity of the hair but are also good for the environment. Shami owns 23 patents as well as accomplishing many firsts. His return promises to uphold these standards and continue to add to his list of endeavors.

Joining him will be his son Rami Shami who has returned to run the day-to-day operations; a role he has done for over 30 years. Also, his Executive Team consisting of Andre Chiavelli, Executive Vice President Global Sales, Marketing, Education and Public Relations; Stuart Feldshon, Senior Vice President of North America; Scott Emery, Vice President of International; and Lisa Marie Garcia, Vice President of Product Development and Innovation will continue to build and expand their roles for this next phase of growth.

According to Farouk Shami, “I am proud to say that I run the business with the best team of professionals which got us to where we are today, the leader of the professional beauty industry.  Together, we are determined to succeed and lead by offering our great professionals the most innovative environmental products, services, education, shows, marketing and advertisement to increase all revenues.  Our facilities in Houston are now about two million square feet and growing. We couldn’t be more excited to see what is next.”
