After a successful career spanning more than 25 years in the beauty industry, Dominique Conseil, Global Brand President, Aveda, has announced plans to retire. Mr. Conseil joined the Company in 2000 and was the first executive to assume the role of Global Brand President, Aveda.

During his tenure, Aveda also launched some of its bestselling product lines including Damage Remedy, Smooth Infusion and Invati Solutions for Thinning Hair. Adopting an international mindset, Mr. Conseil helped Aveda expand its presence globally and was instrumental in launching the brand and its core mission into multiple leading hair care markets including Japan, France, and the Middle East.

During that time, her responsibilities included driving revenue growth, brand building and portfolio integration for multiple brands across the U.S., Western Europe and Asia/Pacific. Ms. De Laere’s outstanding category knowledge, professional salon channel expertise and global leadership experience make her uniquely suited to lead Aveda into its next phase of growth.

Sandra Main, Global Brand President, La Mer, to expand brand leadership with Bobbi Brown

Sandra Main’s impressive career trajectory has helped fuel the outstanding success of some of the Company’s most coveted brands since she joined the Company more than 20 years ago.
