Natura & Co. — the owner of Natura, Aesop and The Body Shop — has appointed José Antonio de Almeida Filippo chief financial officer.
Filippo will also serve as vice president of finance and investor relations, and be in charge of financial management for Aesop and The Body Shop, which Natura acquired from L’Oréal in September. He will become a statutory director of Natura’s executive committee. He starts in May.
Filippo has experience in international management and public-company financials from his previous roles.
He was most recently with aerospace business Embraer, where he was cfo and investor relations director since 2012. Before that, he was cfo at retail and distribution operation Pão de Açúcar Group and vice president of finance and investor relations for energy business CPFL Energia.
Natura revealed a series of management changes in September. Roberto Marques was named executive chairman, and Natura said each brand would have its own chief executive officer and executive committee.
