Shiseido has announced that effective June 8, Jill Scalamandre will take over as President of bareMinerals & BUXOM. Susan Jurevics, who had formerly led the brands, has left the company to pursue other opportunities.

In the short term, Jill will continue her role as President of the Makeup Center of Excellence, maintaining involvement as the company ramps up for an upcoming launch slated for August.

According to Marc Rey, President and CEO, Shiseido Americas, since taking on the role of President of Global Marketing for bareMinerals and BUXOM in March, Jill has been instrumental in the recent progress of both brands, especially in defining and articulating bareMinerals’ Power of Good platform.

“With Jill’s vision, creativity, interpersonal skills, proven brand leadership, and all of [the team’s] hard work over the last few months, [Shiseido] has been making great strides in positioning bareMinerals and BUXOM for sustained growth. I know Jill will bring this passion and leadership to her new responsibility leading Global Markets,” Marc said.
