NEW YORK — Elizabeth Jerrett, a former marketing executive at Elizabeth Arden who became president and chief executive officer of cosmetics marketer Posner Laboratories in the mid-Eighties, died Oct. 25 after a long battle with breast cancer. She was 63.
Jerrett began her career in the beauty industry in 1972 as director of marketing for Arden. Several years later, however, she joined Converse as vice president of marketing in Boston, which also was the location of her alma mater. Jerrett had been one of the first female graduates of the Harvard Business School, not long after the school opened its M.B.A. program to women in the early Sixties, according to a longtime friend.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
