After a tumultuous four months, Andrea Jung’s 12-year run as chief executive officer of Avon Products Inc. ended with a sigh.
“As I end my tenure, what a privilege it’s been to serve as Avon’s leader for the past 12 years,” Jung told the sparsely filled auditorium of shareholders at the company’s annual meeting Thursday morning. There wasn’t even a round of applause for the woman whose mere presence, in the past, was enough to rouse thousands of Avon sales representatives in a standing ovation, and whose name regularly landed on business magazines’ list of the most powerful executives in the world.
