Allan Share – President of the SIA
In August of 2010, Allan Share, a 33-year veteran of the Health and Wellness industry, took over as President of the Day Spa Association (DSA) and the International Medical Spa Association (IMSA), now both under the SIA umbrella.
“I don’t know where the years have gone! I can honestly say I love being in our business. I look forward to speaking with wellness practitioners every day, attending over 20 trade events a year and continuing to grow my knowledge of Spa,” says Allan. After selling his previous businesses, he adds, “there’s not another industry in which I care to spend time. This industry is a passion for me, everyday I can’t wait to speak to those in the spa channel.”
The SIA is the leading trade Associations supporting Spa, Salon, Resort, Luxury, Esthetics, Skin care, Medical Spa, Cosmetology, Massage and more.
Membership is free and supported by industry manufacturers, distributors and those that service our industry. The member benefit package includes: a resource department (call us on any subject and we’ll do the work), available subscriptions to industry leading magazines, legislative updates, world-class Calendar of Events, Library on current topics and most of all “we connect the community across the globe.” Just ask, we’re happy to help.
Allan’s previous companies include New Life Systems and Lotus Touch. Both companies were sold to Scrip Companies (owners of Scrip/HESSCO, Massage Warehouse, Bodyworkmall and others) in 2007. He continued on for three years as Director of Spa Operations, before taking over the Association in 2010.
Allan is an advisor to many companies in our industry and is also co-owner of an educational software company producing math and science programs for K-12, college and planetariums around the world.
