Brigitte Taittinger to Leave Annick Goutal

She has been president of the company for the past two decades.

PARIS — Brigitte Taittinger will step down from her role as president of Annick Goutal at the end of this year.

She has run the fragrance house for the past two decades.

In August 2011, Seoul-based AmorePacific Group acquired Annick Goutal from Starwood Capital. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Over the past 18 months, Taittinger has remained at the helm to familiarize AmorePacific executives with Annick Goutal and to structure it in view of the development they envisage, Annick Goutal said in a statement.

An executive from AmorePacific is to replace her as president of the company.
