Coty names new chief science officer
NEW YORK — Coty has found someone to fill its chief science officer position. The company named former Revlon chief science officer and EVP research and development Daniel Ramos to the position Friday.
Ramos brings more than 20 years of R&D experience to Coty, having started his career at Procter & Gamble, first in Venezuela, then in the United States and Japan over the course of 11 years. From P&G, he moved to Reckitt Benckiser, where he was VP R&D health care and part of its global leadership team. He joined Revlon from RB. In his new position, he will report directly to Coty CEO Camillo Pane and be a member of Coty’s executive committee.
“I am delighted to welcome Daniel to Coty,” Pane said. “He has a strong track record in driving growth through consumer-led innovations and in building organizational capacity and capability. Daniel has experience in both emerging and developed markets, having worked and lived in Europe, North America, Asia and Latin America. He is entrepreneurial and has an attitude and outlook that are well aligned to Coty’s new ambition and culture.”
Ramos fills a position left vacant by former chief science officer Ralph Macchio, who retired in June after 25 years with Coty.
