NEW YORK — The Estée Lauder Cos. has appointed Jane Lauder global brand president of Clinique. Succeeding Lauder will be Stephane de la Faverie, who has been named SVP/global general manager of Origins, Ojon and Darphin. Their new roles will become effective April 1.
Both Lauder and de la Faverie will report to Lynne Greene, group president of Clinique, Origins, Ojon, Aveda and Darphin. As announced in 2012, Greene was promoted to group president as part of an organizational redesign.
In addition to supporting the company’s organizational evolution, this appointment was a natural move for Lauder who earlier in her career was SVP, global marketing for Clinique where she was responsible for the brand’s overall strategic marketing and helped take the brand into new markets. As a result of her success in this role, Lauder later became global brand president, Origins, Ojon and Darphin.
In 2011, de la Faverie joined the Estée Lauder Cos. as SVP, global general manager, Aramis and Designer Fragrances; shortly thereafter Lab Series and GoodSkin Labs were added to his responsibilities. Throughout his tenure in the beauty industry, de la Faverie has worked to build a number of skin care brands. Most recently under his leadership, the men’s skin care brand, Lab Series, launched several major innovations globally.
In November of 2012, William P. Lauder and Fabrizio Freda announced an organizational redesign to drive the company’s future success by further aligning brands, ensuring focus on the greatest opportunities globally and creating growth for talent worldwide. The appointments announced today are a continuation of this organizational evolution.
