Sephora USA, based in San Francisco, has named Sharon Rothstein as senior vice president of marketing, succeeding Betsy Olum, who resigned in January after serving with the American perfumery chain since it was founded in 1998.
Meanwhile, in Paris, Jacques Levy, president and chief executive officer of Sephora Worldwide, has taken on the responsibilities of Sephora Europe. This is due to the departure of Renato Semerari, who, as reported, became president of Coty Inc.’s Coty Beauty division. Levy was also awarded the Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur, France’s most prestigious award, on April 10.
