NEW YORK — For attendees at last year’s National Association of Chain Drug Store’s Annual Meeting, Coty Inc. was the talk of the conference, as retailers awaited to hear the firm’s plans for the then newly acquired Del Laboratories beauty portfolio.
For many, it was their first glimpse of Mary van Praag in her role as senior vice president of sales for Coty Beauty. Top-tier retail executives were anxious to learn how Coty would integrate Del’s cosmetics business, particularly the Sally Hansen brand. As retail executives gather in Palm Beach for this year’s conference, van Praag hopes to show how the firm delivered on last year’s agenda.
