Hamburg, September 1, 2022 – Chantecaille Beaute Inc., a leading prestige beauty brand owned by the Beiersdorf Group, has appointed Emily Coleman as its new Chief Executive Officer, succeeding founder Sylvie Chantecaille. Coleman is carrying out her new position in the company’s headquarters in New York, USA, as of now. She reports directly to Beiersdorf Executive Board Member Patrick Rasquinet, who is responsible for the Pharmacy & Selective Business (Eucerin, Hansaplast, La Prairie, Chantecaille).
Coleman joins Chantecaille after 20 years at L’Oréal, where she gained experience in a wide range of areas, including Digital & Marketing, Travel Retail & Retail Operations, as well as Supply Chain. Her last role with L’Oréal was Senior Vice President of the brand Urban Decay. During her career, Coleman acquired a particular passion for developing global brands with local relevance, which she has demonstrated in Paris, Hong Kong, New York, and California. She completed her university education at Oxford University in England and at the MPS Fashion Institute of Technology in New York.
Patrick Rasquinet, Beiersdorf Executive Board member commented “Chantecaille plays a central role at Beiersdorf, as the brand complements our portfolio in prestige beauty with skin care and makeup products. In Emily we have found a CEO with vast experience in skin care and makeup to lift our prestige brand to the next level and continue to grow Chantecaille as a leader in natural beauty. I’m delighted to welcome her to the Beiersdorf Group.”
Emily Coleman, CEO for Chantecaille, added: “It is a great honor for me to join Chantecaille, a brand with strong heritage and values. Sylvie Chantecaille founded this wonderful brand; with all her passion and acumen, she has made it the success it is today. I feel truly privileged to be part of the next chapter of Chantecaille and am committed to ensuring more consumers around the world also discover, engage, and connect with Chantecaille.”
Following the successful takeover of Coppertone in 2019, Chantecaille is already the second acquisition in the United States as part of the company’s C.A.R.E.+ strategy. By acquiring Chantecaille, Beiersdorf bolstered its portfolio in the prestige beauty segment and strengthened its position, especially in the United States, China, and Korea.
