Kenny Gibson has worked in the hairdressing industry for more than 30 years. He has trained hairdressers all over the world and has been an influential member of the TONI&GUY family since 1986 when he became the artistic director of the second TONI&GUY Salon in the United States. He then became the national artistic director where he worked with the International Artistic Team to revamp the TONI&GUY Foundational and Advanced Education Programs. Gibson went on to open the Madison Avenue TONI&GUY Salon in Manhattan in 1999 and was soon appointed to vice president overseeing Academy Operations in 2000. In his new role as co-president, Gibson will be directly responsible for national growth and expansion of the Academies, academy franchising, personnel management and continual development of the Academy programs.

Debbie Webster began her career in hairdressing in England in 1979. Having completed a hairdressing apprenticeship, Webster went on to own and manage a salon. After relocating to the United States in 1991, she joined TONI&GUY at the Sherry Lane salon in Dallas and was quickly promoted to Salon Director. Webster continued to quickly rise through the ranks and has held the positions of regional salon director, managing director of the salon division, executive vice president, chief operating officer and now co-president of Salon and Academy Divisions at TONI&GUY. In this role, Webster is responsible for overseeing daily operations at all company owned locations and acts as a consultant for partnership salons & franchise academies nationwide.
