Estée Lauder is adding two faces to its brand leadership division.

The company recently announced that Michelle Freyre will be taking over as the new global brand president for Clinique.

In 2020, Freyre took over as the senior vice president, global general manager for Clinique. Prior to that, she spent 20 years at Johnson & Johnson, where she served as the president of U.S. beauty, as well as the general manager of Neutrogena.

Glenn Evans has been appointed as the new global brand president for Smashbox and GlamGlow.

In 2019, Evans was named the senior vice president and general manager of Smashbox. Prior to that, he served as the senior vice president of Leading Beauty Forward.

“Michelle and Glenn are both incredibly dynamic leaders who have beautifully steered their respective brands through the challenges of the past year,” John Demsey, executive group president of Estée Lauder said. “I am particularly proud of how effectively they have balanced the needs of the business while being truly thoughtful and empathetic leaders to their brand teams. Their promotions are both very well-deserved.”
