Coty appoints supply chain executive
March 25th, 2014
NEW YORK – Mario Reis has been hired as executive vice president of supply chain at Coty Inc.
Coty said Tuesday that Reis, who joins the beauty care company from Danone, will assume the new position on May 1. To be based in Geneva, he will join the executive committee and report to Coty chief executive officer Michele Scannavini.
Reis will replace Darryl McCall, who is slated to retire on Dec. 31. McCall will work on the transition and other projects to ensure continuity in supply chain performance before his retirement, according to Coty.
"I am very excited to welcome Mario as Coty's new head of supply chain," Scannavini commented. "His successful and diversified experience in the supply chain and commercial fields brings to Coty a unique perspective and strong skill set for a best in class end-to-end supply chain."
Coty noted that Reis brings to the company more than 30 years of experience in the supply chain realm and as a business leader. He held several senior executive positions in worldwide operations at Danone from 1996 to 2014 and, in his various supply chain roles, was successful in implementing best practices and synergies across divisions, Coty said. Most recently, Reis served as managing director of Danone South Africa. Before Danone, he worked at Mars Inc. and Bain & Co. in various business roles from 1986 to 1996.
"Along with Coty's executive team, I would like to acknowledge Darryl's many talents and thank him for his outstanding contributions to our success," Scannavini added. "We very much valued his leadership in building a strong and reliable supply chain. He will be missed, and we wish him all the best for the future."
Coty's roster of fragrance, cosmetics and skin care brands includes Adidas, Calvin Klein, Chloe, Davidoff, Marc Jacobs, OPI, philosophy, Playboy, Rimmel and Sally Hansen.
