Dan Brestle, who has shown a deft talent for building brands and mentoring talent over the last three decades, will retire June 30 from his post as vice chairman and president of the Estée Lauder Cos., North America.
Proud of having worked in every one of the company’s divisions, Brestle, 63, has been a mainstay of management expertise since he joined Lauder in 1978, when the firm consisted of three brands generating $400 million in sales. It remains the world’s prestige powerhouse, consisting of 29 brands with sales in the last fiscal year of $7.9 billion.
