Rose Fernandez has been appointed chief executive officer of Algenist, the prestige algae-based skin-care brand. The announcement comes just 18 months after she joined the Tengram-owned company as senior vice president of sales.
She succeeds Frederic Stoeckel, who is stepping down to return to his home country of France but will remain on the company’s executive board. “Rose is the perfect person to further advance the brand,” Stoeckel said in a statement. “She possesses unparalleled knowledge of the industry and shows clear passion for the products. I’m confident her leadership will help further secure Algenist as a leading prestige skin-care brand.”
