Estée Lauder: new leadership appoitments at La Mer, Mac and Le Labo



Estée Lauder reshuffles the dome of its brands. The US cosmetic group has appointed new global brand presidents of La Mer, Mac, Le Labo with new global presidents and new president of North Asia for the Dr. Jart + and Do the Right Thing brands.


Justin Boxford has been promoted to president of La Mer global brand, after occupying the position of global general manager for three years. At this time, La Mer exceeded 1 billion dollars in revenue in 2018 and expanded its business in Asia. Formerly, Boxford had led the Estée Lauder and Tom Ford Beauty brand internationally for ten years.





As for Mac, Philippe Pinatel has been promoted to global brand president. Pinatel joined the brand in 2018 as senior vice president, where he was in charge of the brand’s repositioning, which stagnated in the United States, though it saw positive international growth. Before joining MAC, Pinatel also worked in Sephora Canada, he has more than 20 years of global retail and beauty experience. 


Other promotions include that of Deborah Royer, global president and creative director of Le Labo and Christopher Wood as president of North Asia, Japan, and South Korea for Dr. Jart + and Do the Right Thing. Royer has previous experience at L’Oréal and Wood has been part of the management team of Dr. Jart + and Do the Right Thing since Estée Lauder went public four years ago.


Josephine Esther Mentzer and her husband, Joseph Lauder, founded Estée Lauder in 1908. The group, which is second by revenue in the beauty products sector, markets its products in 150 countries and territories mainly through the multi-brand channel. The cosmetics company recorded sales of 7,5 billion dollars between July and December 2018.
