Born in Scotland, Linda’s passion for the beauty industry was ignited with her very first job as a graduate trainee in Lewis’s Glasgow, part of the old Sears group. She joined KGA in 1995 and became Sales Director in 2000 before being promoted to Managing Director in 2007.
As Managing Director Linda works collaboratively with Kenneth and the other directors to drive the business and run the company from a day to day perspective. This encompasses working to ensure KGA is fully representing every brand to its best advantage, adhering to each brand’s guidelines and strategy whilst ensuring the company maximises its potential in the UK. From a sales perspective Linda works on strategy, top line negotiation, turnover and sales targets. Linda is also passionate about mentoring and guiding young people within the business.
When she’s not working, she visits family in Scotland and enjoys travel, house renovation projects and long walks with her dog Lucy whom, she adds, is also a member of the KGA family and comes to work with Linda every day.
