Cosmetic Executive Women honored five beauty industry executives at its 35th annual CEW Achiever Awards, held earlier this month at the Waldorf-Astoria hotel.

Honored were Alex Keith, vice president, Procter & Gamble; Janet Pardo, senior vice president of global product development, Clinique; Claudia Poccia, global president, Mark, Avon Products Inc.; Lisa Price, founder, Carol’s Daughter, and Lori Singer, group vice president, global marketing, Coty Prestige.

Each honoree had words of wisdom for the approximately 1,100 in attendance. “There is always someone out there who can inspire you, and competition makes you better,” offered Keith. Pardo quoted poet Kahlil Gibran, and noted “love is work made visible,” and advised attendees to fall in love with their career paths. Poccia advised: “Be present in the moment, reach high, follow your passion and always do your best.” Price advised audience members to remember to be kind to themselves, and noted that it is a lesson she also had to remember. “I am a work in progress,” she said. And Singer noted, “The key to success is the ability to adapt to change.”

Carlotta Jacobson, president of CEW, said that the yearly awards are meant to support the advancement of women in the beauty industry by highlighting female executives’ achievements.

Susan Sweet, general manager, Neutrogena, Johnson & Johnson Consumer Group, accepted CEW’s first Corporate Empowerment for Women Award on behalf of Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies Inc. The award was created to honor companies who have demonstrated a commitment to establishing and leveraging female talent, said Jacobson.
