ASCP President retiring

On May 17, Katie Armitage announced her retirement from Associated Skin Care Professionals (ASCP) after more than 10 years of serving as the company’s president. During that time, she also served as president of the Associated Hair Professionals and Associated Nail Professionals as well as VP of operations and executive director for Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals (ABMP).

Armitage will continue to consult for the company on an as-needed basis. With her retirement, Lauren Snow, a former director of membership, has been promoted to the company’s executive director.

Armitage joined ASCP’s sister location, ABMP, in 1993 and has since been acknowledged as the longest-serving employee in the association’s history. Her roles consisted of managing the membership department, insurance programs and overseeing the day-to-day operations.

ASCP reached nearly 17,000 members and earned a reputation for providing resources and membership for skin care professionals under Armitage’s leadership. She was voted Person of the Year by the Day Spa Association in 2007.

“It has been an honor to have helped so many members reach their career goals. The most rewarding part of my career has always been hearing their stories and tracking their successes. I’m going to miss my talented colleagues immensely, but I am leaving ASCP in capable hands with the leadership of Lauren Snow and Jesse Cormier,” said Armitage.
