Early Wednesday morning Revlon announced that its chairman and CEO, Alan Ennis, had left the company to pursue other interests and that David Kennedy, Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors, had been named Vice Chairman and interim-CEO. David had served as a senior executive of Revlon from 2002 to 2009, including as President and CEO of Revlon from 2006 to 2009. His appointment is effective immediately and Revlon anticipates the appointment of his successor in the near term. Alan joined Revlon in 2005 and was named CEO in 2009. During his tenure Alan oversaw the acquisition of the Pure Ice and Sinful Colors nail brands, as well as the pending acquisition of The Colomer Group, announced August 5, which brings Revlon deeply into the professional realm with the CND nail brand and the American Crew hair care brand. Alan had said at the time that the deal, which expects to be accretive to cash flow and earnings in the first year, “represents a significant and logical strategic step forward for Revlon as it complements our core business, expands our distribution into new channels, and provides meaningful cost synergy opportunities. TCG’s presence in the professional salon channel, which Revlon currently does not serve, will expand our product offering and enable us to reach new consumers. We plan to capitalize on TCG’s extensive geographic and channel distribution, and leverage our collective innovation capability and leadership as we seek to drive growth across our expanded portfolio of brands.”
