Atlanta, GA (January 17, 2017) The Green Spa Network (GSN) has expanded its board of directors to include Adar Venyige, Director of Sales, VB Cosmetics, Inc. and Amber Marie Beard, Vice President Sustainability, Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas.

After receiving his degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management from the University of Nevada at Las Vegas, Mr. Venyige has pursued a wide range of entrepreneurial endeavors. Most recently, he has entered the Spa and Wellness industry working with Dazzle Dry Nail Lacquer to bring a revolutionary sustainable nail product to market.

Ms. Beard is a veteran sustainability professional having spent 11 years working globally through sustainable architecture, construction, development, real estate investment, private equity and now hospitality with leading luxury hotel, resort and spa brand, Six Senses.

“Both Adar and Amber bring fresh enthusiasm for the pursuit of a sustainable future to the GSN Board”, says Karen Short, GSN Board President and SVP of Sales and Marketing for Universal Companies. “Adding direct experience in implementing sustainability initiatives in the product realm and corporate setting to our team supports GSN’s position as a thought leader in promoting sustainability through vitality.”
