Shannon Curtin, SVP Consumer Beauty North America, has left the company. Shannon joined Coty in 2016 to help the beauty giant absorb its Procter & Gamble beauty acquisition and to steer its portfolio of brands towards a rebirth.

Andrew Stanleick will succeed Shannon as SVP Consumer Beauty North America. Andrew joined Coty a year ago charged with strengthening its European Consumer Beauty organization, with a focus on operational discipline, customer orientation and growing talent.

“He has the right skills and experiences to lead our largest market and build on the strong foundation laid by Shannon and team,” said Laurent Kleitman, President, Coty Consumer Beauty, of her departure. “[This] leadership news is a clear signal of where we are focusing: growing our iconic brands, driving innovation and building our digital prowess. With our new lineup of experienced leaders, a solid strategy in place and the Coty culture, we are confident that we are building the foundation of a strong global beauty business that will pave the way for long term sustainable success. I’d like to personally thank Shannon for her leadership of Consumer Beauty North America over these last two years. She has been instrumental in the successful integration of our business in the region and has built a strong commercial organization. We wish Shannon much success in her future and thank her for having led the business with humanity, passion and dedication.”
