Avon Products Inc. has named Pablo Munoz as senior vice president and president of its North America division.

“We are committed to returning our U.S. business to health, and I am pleased to welcome Pablo to the Avon team to lead that effort,” said McCoy. “Pablo is an innovative thinker and a big-picture strategist with strong operating skills and a proven track record of driving growth. Avon will be well-served by his deep experience in both consumer products and direct sales, including his passion for motivating representatives.”
