“As the business world gets more complex, there is a tendency to get distracted—with financing, technology, labor laws or the competition. These challenges are real, which is why we can’t let up. We just need to keep doing all the things we’re doing, do them better and show customers that ‘caring more’ isn’t a brand slogan. It’s our promise.”

As Great Clips CEO, Rhoda brings more than 20 years of executive leadership experience in various positions at Great Clips, including a deep understanding of what makes successful organizations work. While providing leadership at the corporate level, she also works closely with franchisees, helping them take advantage of a powerful network of people, tools and resources to ensure their success.

Rhoda joined the executive team in 1987 when Great Clips was a regional chain of 180 salons owned by three partners. She has prior experience in human resources, business leadership and consulting with various leading companies, including food and agricultural giant Land O’ Lakes.
