Ronan Perceval is the CEO, creator and founder of Phorest Salon Software. Ronan’s inspiration for developing Phorest came about in 2003, when his friend who owned a beauty salon mentioned they were struggling to manage their salon appointments and marketing. Ronan spent months working on the front desk at his friend’s salon to get a deep understanding of the challenges that salon owners were facing, before developing Phorest as the software solution to meet those needs. Since then, Ronan has continued to keep his finger to the pulse of the salon industry, to make sure that Phorest is updated and developed with the needs of salon owners at its core. You can catch Ronan traveling the world, speaking to salon owners at hair and beauty conferences; and each year hosting one of the world’s leading conferences in the industry – the Salon Owner’s Summit.
