Clean beauty retailer, Credo, has appointed fashion and beauty executive Maureen Chiquet as independent director of its Board. Maureen will become the fifth woman to join the Board, shifting the composition to 70 percent female leadership for the first time since Credo was founded in 2014 by the late Shashi Batra and Annie Jackson.

“The clean beauty industry is being driven by women—over 90 percent of our brand partners are founded or led by women—so we are thrilled to add Maureen to our Board, as we see tremendous value in our leadership representing the majority of our brand creators and customer base,” said Dawn Dobras, CEO, Credo. “Our mission has always remained the same, to be the industry’s change-maker and provide greater access to clean, safe products that are better for people and the environment, and by adding Maureen’s expertise, I know we can support our mission even further.”

Maureen began her career in marketing at L’Oréal Paris in 1985, before joining The Gap in 1988, where she helped launch and build the Old Navy brand. She served as President of Banana Republic in 2002 and joined Chanel in 2003 as Chief Operating Officer and President of U.S. Operations. In 2007, Maureen became Chanel’s first Global Chief Executive Officer, a position she held until she left in 2016. Since then, she has published a book, “Beyond the Label: Women, Leadership and Success on Our Own Terms.”

“Now more than ever, people are choosing to support companies who are transparent and create products that are safe and align with their values. I’m thrilled to be a part of this clean beauty revolution and to work with a company leading redefining the beauty industry,” said Maureen.
