Jean-Paul Agon, chairman and chief executive officer of the L’Oréal Group, made key appointments Tuesday to the group’s executive committee.
Geoff Skinsgley, formerly managing director of human resources for Paris-based L’Oréal, has been appointed to the new position of managing director of the Africa and Middle East zone. L’Oréal said the new position is part of the company’s strategy to accelerate its expansion in countries with “high population growth rates and significant long-term economic potential,” which in turn is part of its plan to acquire one billion new customers in the next 10 to 15 years. Skinsgley has been with L’Oréal since 1986, and has served as head of several of the group’s businesses and countries, including the U.K., India and the Netherlands.
