Ke­tu­rah is tops

Guardian Express - - NEWS - By DENISE S CAHILL

THE day spa that Kim and Jemma Ster­giou have spent 23 years build­ing was re­cently named Aus­tralian Beauty Sa­lon/Spa of the Year by in­dus­try lead­ers.

But there’s more to come for Ke­tu­rah Day Spa, say the Clare­mont cou­ple.

“We’re very ex­cited about our next step be­cause Ke­tu­rah changed the mar­ket 23 years ago,” Kim said.

“It was the first day spa in Aus­tralia but what we’re do­ing next is re­ally big.”

The Ster­gious would not re­veal too many de­tails of the new ven­ture, ex­cept that it will open in 2019, but they hinted that make-up, fash­ion and fit­ness – pas­sions they share with their chil­dren Jake (19) and Clau­dia (17) – will be part of it.

What is known is that it will add to the Ke­tu­rah port­fo­lio that al­ready in­cludes Carine, Fre­man­tle, High­gate and Ned­lands.

Kim was work­ing in beer and wine sales and Jemma in cor­po­rate ad­min­is­tra­tion when the cou­ple bought land in Carine that housed a spa called Breathe in 2004.

When they opened Fre­man­tle and High­gate two years later, they changed the name to Ke­tu­rah Day Spa.

Jemma is pas­sion­ate about “mak­ing peo­ple feel amaz­ing”.

Kim is proud of their com­mit­ment to “over in­vest­ing” that he cred­its to the brand’s suc­cess.

2017 awards: Aus­tralian Beauty In­dus­try Awards: WA/NT Beauty Sa­lon/Spa of the Year, Aus­tralia’s Best Sa­lon Train­ing, Aus­tralia’s Best Mar­ket­ing.
