NEW YORK — Chris Peterson, chief operating officer for operations at Revlon Inc., is taking the chief financial officer reins from Juan Figuereo, who is retiring.
Revlon said Peterson will assume direct responsibility for the CFO role, effective immediately. He currently oversees the company’s finance, supply chain and information technology functions.
Peterson joined Revlon in April from Ralph Lauren Corp., where he was president of global brands, serving in that position since 2015. Before that, he was executive vice president, chief administrative officer and CFO at Ralph Lauren from 2014 to 2015. He came to the company in 2012 as senior vice president and CFO.
Prior to joining Ralph Lauren, Peterson spent 20 years at Procter & Gamble Co. in a variety of management roles, including vice president and CFO of global household care as well as vice president and CFO of global health and well-being.
Figuereo came to Revlon as CFO in April 2016 after having held senior financial positions at a range of companies. He served as executive vice president and CFO at mobile communications provider NII Holdings Inc. from October 2012 to October 2015 and held the same title at Newell Rubbermaid Inc. from 2009 to 2012 and at Cott Corp. from 2007 to 2009.
Before that, he served as vice president of mergers and acquisitions at Walmart International from 2003 to 2007 and in international, finance and general management positions at PepsiCo from 1988 to 2003.
Revlon noted that Figuereo played a key role in the acquisition of Elizabeth Arden, which was closed in September 2016. The integration is now under way, according to Revlon.
“I’d like to thank Juan for his contributions and leadership throughout the successful acquisition of Elizabeth Arden and the early stages of its integration,” stated Fabian Garcia, president and chief executive officer of Revlon. “Our integration is on track and, as we have reported, exceeding our initial synergy expectations. We are excited to have Chris take on the CFO role in order to continue this momentum as we execute on our strategy to drive long-term growth.”
Revlon’s roster of beauty care brands includes Revlon, Elizabeth Arden, Revlon ColorSilk, Revlon Professional, American Crew, Almay, Mitchum, Cutex, Elizabeth Taylor, Britney Spears, Juicy Couture, Curve, John Varvatos and Christina Aguilera, among others.
