With the acquisition of Elemis by L’Occitane Group in January for a reported $900 million, the leading British luxury skin care brand has announced leadership changes in various markets, and is expanding its global footprint.
Séan Harrington, CEO, Elemis, has relocated to Asia to open an office in Hong Kong, as of April 1. Noella Gabriel, President, will now be based out of the company’s New York headquarters with the goal of driving aggressive expansion of the brand’s U.S. footprint. In the U.K., Oriele Frank has been promoted to Managing Director, and will oversee the business in the brand’s home market.
Elemis, which was founded in 1989, operates in more than 90 markets, with headquarters in London and New York.
“We are thrilled to be entering a new and exciting phase of growth for Elemis. This next period will strengthen the continued growth and momentum behind our timeless brand and remarkably transformative products,” said Séan. “Together as a team, a brand and a family, we have incredible opportunity for success.”
