Kenny Rogers, Southwest Territory

Kenny Rogers started his beauty career at the top of our profession – as a hairstylist. Always on the lookout for career opportunities, he was quickly hired as a salon sales consultant by one of the largest Midwest distributors at the time.

His experience with salon sales and distributor workings led to his next move. Hired by one of the premier MW rep groups, he managed distributor accounts across a large portion of the Midwest, and there, discovered his true talents. After working several years with this group, he joined up with Bruce Butler to form their own rep group, Butler & Rogers, in the lucrative Southwest territory, where he quickly became one of the most respected reps in the industry.

Times change, and Kenny has kept up with those changes, joining with Bobby Jones in the 90’s to form Rogers & Jones, which they sold in the early 2000’s. He and Jones stayed on with the new owners to guide the business in the SW.

In 2016, he made what he believes is his best move yet and joined forces to work with Kevin Van Nest at Van Nest Company in the SW.

With over 40 years of experience at every level of the beauty industry, Kenny’s strengths are his incredible product knowledge and his lifetime of relationships with his distributors. Van Nest Company is lucky, indeed, to have Kenny on the team.
