GEORGETOWN, Texas (January 6, 2016) – Gordon Edward Logan has been named vice president of operations for Sport Clips Haircuts by Mark Kartarik, president.
Prior to joining Sport Clips, Inc.’s executive leadership, Logan served as senior director of operations for Sport Clips under Connie Boltinghouse, who previously served as vice president of operations and is retiring after a long and successful career in the franchise industry, having held positions with The Barbers, as well as Regis Corporation, prior to working at Sport Clips. Logan joined Sport Clips full-time in January 2010 after working as a consultant with Deloitte Consulting in Dallas. He has been in charge of the company-owned Sport Clips stores in Austin, Texas and Las Vegas, Nevada in addition to other responsibilities within the operations department. Under Logan’s leadership, Sport Clips’ company stores have been among some of the top performers in the Sport Clips system and have been the proving ground for many company-wide innovations and enhancements.
“With his in-depth knowledge of the Sport Clips system and innovative ideas, Gordon Edward has expanded our company-owned store presence in Austin and Las Vegas and has led his team to new records for performance each of the past few years. He has influenced our store design, operational procedures and grand opening plans in ways that have positively impacted the entire system and helped make Sport Clips the dominant player in the men and boys haircare market,” says Kartarik.
“I feel fortunate be part of such a strong brand that’s as highly respected as Sport Clips. I’m confident Sport Clips will continue to see extensive growth in the years ahead, and I look forward to continuing to work with our operations team to further strengthen all aspects of store performance,” Logan says.
Sport Clips recently announced that its same store sales continue to grow at a rate unmatched in its category. With almost 1,500 stores open, there have been only five closures since 2010, considered remarkable for a system of its size. Sport Clips has been twice ranked by FORBES as a “Top Ten Best Franchise” for its investment level. For more information about Sport Clips, visit SportClips.com.
