"I couldn't be more proud to be part of such an inspirational organisation and I am looking forward to supporting the further growth of CIDESCO worldwide," she added.

Fuhr's appointment was announced at the 67th CIDESCO World Congress General Assembly, which took place in Chicago at the end of September, alongside two other board appointments; Laura Grazioli as the Sales and Marketing director and Gerard Gordon as the executive director, a newly created position.

Vicky Harper, who previously served as the board member for Education, was re-elected to the newly-titled position of Education Quality Assurance director, while VP Karin Lupgens, Education Development director Pamela Adkins and Financial director Biju Nair all retained their positions.

A number of CIDESCO members, including Annica Joensuu, Cheng Ming Ming and Lydia Sarfati, were honoured for their services to the industry, with Joensuu winning the CIDESCO Medaille d'Or and Ming Ming and Sarfati being awarded CIDESCO Medaille du Merite. Norlisa Lee Binti Abdullah won the CIDESCO Medaille d'Esthetique, while outgoing president Anna-Cari Gund was given the title of Honourary President title.
