November, 2013 – Bucharest, Romania – It was love at first sight when Repêchage CEO and Founder, Lydia Sarfati, was first introduced to Anca Hirtopeanu Business Development Manager, and Marcel Muresan, General Manager, of Professional Brands M&D at Cosmoprof Bologna this past spring. With 6 months of courtship, Repêchage turned out to be the perfect match for Professional Brands M&D and Romania.

To celebrate the introduction of Repêchage professional skincare products and treatments to Romania, an extremely successful and special launch event was held. Attending the launch event proved to be in high demand, as all could not be accommodated at once. Two sessions were held and both national and international participants were in attendance. Amongst these participants were 300 VIPS, celebrities, and Romanian movie stars.

To officiate the launch of Repêchage skincare products and treatments in Romania, Professional Brands M&D created a Repêchage training center that exceeded expectations. As Lydia Sarfati states, “I was completely blown away when I saw the Repêchage training center. Not only was the center designed in such a professional manner in regards to the furniture, equipment, and therapy area, but even the penthouse terrace and full kitchen for breaks was exquisite. I would really like to thank Cristina Ricu, Marketing Manager, Anca Hirtopeanu, Business Development Manager, and Marcel Muresan General Manager of Professional Branda M&D for delivering such a beautiful design.” In just two weeks, Professional Brands was able to train 45 beauty therapists in Repêchage professional skincare products and treatments, and now has future classes at the training center booked.
