Revlon announces new global presidents, exit of COO
February 25th, 2014
NEW YORK – Revlon Inc. has announced the departure of its chief operating officer and the appointment of new global presidents for its consumer and professional divisions.
The beauty care and cosmetics giant said Tuesday that Chris Elshaw, executive vice president and COO, has left the company, effective immediately, to pursue other interests.
"After 12 years with the company, I felt it was time to seek a new challenge," Elshaw said in a statement. "I've very much enjoyed working with my colleagues and business partners to develop our business around the world, and I am proud of the many achievements during my time at Revlon. I wish the team well in the next stage of their journey."
Meanwhile, Revlon has named Gianni Pieraccioni as executive vice president and global president of the Revlon Consumer Division and Sennen Pamich as executive vice president and global president of the Revlon Professional Division.
Previously, Pieraccioni served as executive vice president and chief commercial officer for Alitalia. Before that, he held several management, marketing and commercial positions of increasing responsibility in the consumer products and luxury goods sectors, including at Procter & Gamble, PepsiCo, Johnson & Johnson, Sector Group, Binda Group and Averna Group.
Pamich most recently was senior vice president of Revlon Pro Brands for the United States and Canada. He joined The Colomer Group in January 2010 and before that held several senior management, commercial and marketing posts of increasing scope and responsibility at Procter & Gamble, Johnson & Johnson and Bulgari Perfumes & Cosmetics.
"Both Gianni and Sennen have significant experience and demonstrated success in leading global businesses," stated Lorenzo Delpani, president and chief executive officer of Revlon. "Gianni brings to our Revlon Consumer division broad international as well as domestic experience, as he worked in Italy, Spain, the U.S. and Brazil and had country, regional and global responsibilities in his previous positions. Sennen brings a global vision to his new role in our Revlon Professional division, having held senior management, sales and marketing positions in the U.S., Asia and Europe. These appointments are designed to strengthen our leadership team and to better support and focus our efforts to develop each of our consumer and professional divisions."
Delpani commented on Elshaw's departure, "We appreciate Chris' dedication and contributions during his 12 years with the company, and we wish him the best in his future endeavors."
Revlon's global brand roster includes Revlon color cosmetics, Almay color cosmetics, SinfulColors color cosmetics, Pure Ice color cosmetics, Revlon ColorSilk hair color, Revlon beauty tools, Charlie fragrances, Mitchum antiperspirant deodorants, and Ultima II and Gatineau skincare.
