New Frontiers: Sylvie Moreau

Late last year, Coty announced a new organizational structure and the future leadership team for the company, both of which will become effective subject to completion of Coty’s merger with the Proctor & Gamble Company’s fine fragrance, color cosmetics, salon professional and hair color and styling businesses. Sylvie Moreau, current Executive Vice President of Wella, the salon division of P&G, was named president of its future Coty Professional Beauty Division, which will include Wella Professional and OPI. “She has the right leadership skills, passion for the industry and a strong vision required to lead the Coty Professional organization and its brands,” said Bart Becht, Coty Chairman and Interim CEO. Sal Mauceri, CEO, Wella North America, also announced his support. “Sylvie’s deep salon experience makes her a great leader for the future organization,” he said. “Her passion for Wella, its people and the salon industry is well-known in North America.” The merger with Coty is expected to close in the second half of 2016, at which time Moreau’s appointment will become effective. “I am honored and delighted to be the future leader of Coty Professional, home to the world’s leading salon mega-brands, Wella and OPI,” says Moreau. “Both Wella and OPI are iconic leaders in the salon channel, with a fully complementary portfolio and passionate, expert organizations eager to win in our industry. We are both fueled by innovation, education and creativity as well as the desire to delight our salon professional partners.”
