Finally, she will also grow the company’s investments in talent management and capabilities within the marketing and consumer engagement teams.
“We are focused on delivering the very best, high-quality products that leverage consumer insights from our enhanced data analytics, and I am confident that [Lauder] is the right person to lead this important area of the business,” said Freda. “[Lauder's] unique combination of understanding high-touch consumer experiences, and data analytics and insights, will further strengthen our innovative product offerings and experiences for our consumers globally.”
Lauder will be succeeded at Clinique by Freyre.
In the role, Freyre will be responsible for guiding the brand’s overall strategic vision, including innovation, product development and marketing, and all facets of consumer and digital engagement. She will also collaborate with members of the global Clinique leadership team to build the brand's international growth, and will work with her team to develop new retail experiences for the brand.
