Meet Richard Kaufman
Founder: Euro Hair Imports
Richard “Rick” Kaufman of Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, FL. is a Boston University Alumni having received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology, Sociology and Business Administration. Richard spent the first 20 years of his career owning and operating family owned businesses that manufactured folding cartons and set-up boxes respectively. After Richard sold his businesses, he had an opportunity to pursue a line of work that he actually had and continues to have a passion for to this day. And that is to help people, specifically women with thinning hair to find solutions to what is a devastating problem to many.
Richard himself suffered from premature hair loss beginning at the age of 17. By the age of 20 he had undergone three hair transplant surgeries. Soon after the sale of his two companies, Richard began his career in the hair business as a salon manager. It was then that he decided to attend The New England Hair Academy and acquired both barbering and cosmetology licenses. This would afford him the greatest pool of opportunity to follow his dream. He then moved from Boston, Massachusetts to Fort Lauderdale, Florida to work in the hair replacement industry.
A unique opportunity came about to head up the operations of a wholesale company which began by selling Gisela Mayer designer wigs and hairpieces. Today, now nine years later, Richard continues to sell this premium line of wigs and hair pieces through his own company, Euro Hair Imports, Inc. His business is both rewarding and lucrative with an ever growing and expansive nationwide customer base.
