The Professional Beauty Association (PBA) announces that famed businessman, TV personality and Dallas Mavericks owner, Mark Cuban, is the keynote speaker for the 2014 PBA Business Forum, which is held during PBA Beauty Week.
Hosted by Cosmoprof North America (CPNA), PBA Beauty Week is an inclusive beauty event, offering unlimited networking, education and business-to-business opportunities to all sectors of the industry. PBA Beauty Week will be held at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, from July 13 to 15, 2014.
About Mark: After graduating from Indiana University, Cuban moved to Dallas and created MicroSolutions, a computer consulting service. In 1990, he sold MicroSolutions to CompuServe. In 1995, he and long-time friend Todd Wagner came up with an Inteet based solution to listen to Hoosiers Basketball games in Texas. That solution was Broadcast.com, which streams audio over the Inteet. In just four short years, Broadcast.com (then Audionet) was sold to Yahoo for $5.6 billion dollars.
Since his acquisition of the Dallas Mavericks in 2000, Cuban has overseen the Mavs competing in the NBA Finals for the first time in franchise history in 2006 - and they became NBA World Champions in 2011. They are currently listed as one of Forbes' most valuable franchises in sports. In addition to the Mavs, Cuban is chairman and CEO of AXS TV, one of ABC's "Sharks" on the hit show Shark Tank, and an investor in an ever-growing portfolio of businesses.
