Sundial Brands names chief operating, brand-building officer

By Gisselle Gaitan - 05/21/2018
Sundial Brands, the parent company of such brands as SheaMoisture, Nubian Heritage, Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture and nyakio, has announced an addition to its leadership team.

Kimberly Evans Paige, who was previously the chief marketing officer of Coty Consumer Beauty US, will be joining the Amityville, N.Y.-based company in the newly created role of chief operating and brand-building officer. She will report to founder, CEO and executive chairman Richelieu Dennis.

In this new role, Paige and Dennis will work with the executive team to craft and support the overall strategic direction of the company and develop a plan for continued growth. Both will work with the existing product portfolio, new and innovative products and line extensions to build the business in new channels, the company said.

She also will be responsible for operations, which includes the end-to-end supply chain, marketing, sales and continually assessing to build the organization and infrastructure for company growth.

“As we continue to experience and plan for future robust growth, it became clear that we needed to create a role that would help ensure that we are appropriately positioned and resourced for our next phase,” Dennis said. “It was even more clear to us that the right partner to help scale the work we have done is Kimberly Paige. Her unique combination of analytical and creative prowess, cultural sensibilities and her passion for people and purpose-driven companies make her a natural fit for Sundial. We are thrilled to welcome her to the team as an accomplished leader whom we are confident will drive breakthrough impact and results for our company.”

Paige holds more than 20 years of brand, innovation and general management experience, with a proven track-record of building billion-dollar brands and business, the company said. Before joining Coty, she spent 17 years at Coca-Cola, where she led several businesses and drove brand loyalty for such brands as Sprite, Fanta, SmartWater and more.

“I am immensely honored to join Sundial Brands in this newly-created role and am looking forward to working with Rich and the entire Sundial family to drive the company’s growth through purpose, inclusion and Community Commerce,” Paige said. “I have long admired Sundial for its disruptive market leadership and its DNA of innovation and engagement, as well as its commitment to underserved women and communities. I am excited to now be able to contribute to the company’s ongoing success delivering maximum performance and maximum impact.”
