A longstanding connection 

Tracey Hughes said, “It’s a privilege to endorse Kitomba and help business owners leverage this incredible technology for their growth. My longstanding relationship with the company dates back to being one of the first salons in Australia to implement the software, so I know first-hand the power Kitomba has for helping salons to increase their efficiency and revenue.”

Tracey added: “I knew the founders Al and Tom well, and remember working with them on ideas for new features. They were so impressive to work with and I’ve witnessed Kitomba’s amazing growth ever since. I’m honoured to be asked to be the international ambassador as I admire Kitomba’s industry-leading technology and the great service they provide to their customers. I’m looking forward to helping salons to realise how Kitomba can support their business operations and success.”

The power of leveraging your software 

Alyssa Dowsett, General Manager of Kitomba Salon and Spa Software, said: “At Kitomba, our mission is to empower hair and beauty businesses to succeed. Software is such an integral part of any salon, but often it’s not used to its full potential, meaning salons are missing out on opportunities to leverage their software to make their lives easier and generate more revenue,” she explained. 

“That’s why a big focus of ours is providing support, education, and knowledge from industry experts to help salon, spa and clinic owners achieve their goals and get the most from their software. Tracey’s expertise and dedication make her the perfect fit to align with our strategy,” she added. 

“Tracey is an exceptional businesswoman and a global icon in the industry. Her wealth of knowledge, experience, creativity, and strategic thinking, coupled with her commitment to education, make her an invaluable asset. We’re thrilled to have her endorse Kitomba.”
