Kim is by far the best relationship-builder with whom I have ever worked. When she joined the team at Camera Ready Cosmetics, she quickly became an expert in the pro makeup industry and developed relationships that we were unable to create without her. Kim introduced new and fresh marketing ideas to Camera Ready Cosmetics, and is credited for increasing our revenue, while elevating our brand image. One of her best assets is her quick adaptability and ability to proactively maximize the needs of the business. Her enthusiastic attitude remains positive no matter the circumstance, and she is highly tenacious. Even under stressful situations, Kim lifts the spirits of those around her — and that's a skill I find extremely rare in any business. She is also great fun to work with!

Her deep knowledge and base of experience in the beauty industry has her always on top of the latest consumer trends and brand positioning. And every day she brings enthusiasm and positivity to her work, turning tough tasks into pleasurable work and putting smiles on the faces of those around her. I highly respect and value her perspective.

I was fortunate to work with Kim a number of times during my career at Neiman Marcus. She worked for me in both Lingerie and Beauty, where she was very knowledgeable on both the product, and the management of the business. Kim is a very talented merchant and always maintained a positive attitude, even in the most difficult situations. She was quick, efficient, attentive to detail, and was always looking for better ways to accomplish each undertaking. Kim was a strong team member and very professional at all times.

It has been a pleasure and honor to work directly with Kim Henney during her tenure at Camera Ready Cosmetics.

Her professionalism, honesty and sincerity have been an inspiration and have served as a guiding light to my in-house sales staff who have learned so much from her.
