ShearShare is sending our Congratulations to the new Executive Director of PBA Nina Daily!

In my time knowing Steve, he has been a beacon of light for our industry. Every interaction with him exudes positive energy. Steve will be missed but not forgotten. I am excited for Nina to step into this role and look forward to working together to continue elevating our industry

In October 2020, our CEO Dr. Tye Caldwell became the first African American Male to be elected to serve on the Advisory Council for the Professional Beauty Association. During that time, a lot of changes have happened in the Beauty industry due specifically to the COVID pandemic. The PBA made it their mission to keep its members, and the industry at large, informed with the various transitions at the local and national level.

Under the leadership of Steven Sleeper, the PBA worked to elevate and unite the professional beauty industry. Under his guidance, the members of the Beauty & Barber Supply Institute (BBSI), the American Beauty Association (ABA), The Salon Association (TSA), and the National Cosmetology Association (NCA) joined forces to create the Professional Beauty Association, which has become the industry’s largest and most comprehensive trade association.

However after 25 years, Steven has decided to retire and the PBA named Nina Daily as the new executive director. Daily has been with the PBA for over two years and brings more than 20 years of business and marketing experience to the role. “I’m looking forward to leading a team of capable and committed professionals who are passionate about the professional beauty industry, and who together, can help spark a new era of development for the PBA and the industry as a whole,” Daily added.
