Coty appoints new global chief supply officer

Changes are plenty when it comes to Coty’s leadership and executive committee.

The company announced that in order to support its ongoing turnaround plan and future growth, it has appointed Richard Jones as its new global chief supply officer, as well as a member of its executive committee.

Jones, who will hold responsibility for manufacturing, planning, logistics and distribution, will report to CEO Pierre Laubies, and be based in Amsterdam.

“We are glad to welcome Richard to our team and his experience, notably in Beauty, will be key to the progress of our company’s evolution. Today’s appointment is an important step in supporting our ongoing transformation and our strategic roadmap for future growth,” Pierre Laubies said. “Reducing complexity and costs will drive operational leadership and unlock opportunities for reinvestment and profit expansion.”

Previously Jones was the chief supply chain officer and executive committee member at Keurig, where he was responsible for global product supply and the quality, safety and environmental management of the company’s manufacturing process.

Prior to that he spent 18 years at L’Oréal in progressive operations, manufacturing and supply chain roles that support all beauty categories.
