Pamela Gill Alabaster has been named vice president of global corporate responsibility for the Estée Lauder Cos. Inc.
In her new role, Alabaster will oversee the continued development and implementation of the company’s corporate responsibility strategy in alignment with the company’s long-term business objectives, said William P. Lauder, executive chairman, who is one of the three executives to whom Alabaster will report. Alabaster’s other supervisors are Gregory Polcer, executive vice president, global supply chain, and Peter Jueptner, senior vice president, strategy and new business development, who are cochairs of the company’s corporate responsibility efforts under Lauder’s direction.
“Corporate responsibility has been an important part of our company’s success since its founding,” said Lauder. “As we continue to grow and prosper globally, it is critical that we continue to understand and serve the needs of our consumers, engage with the communities where we live and work, and leverage our collective talents in every brand, region and function to ensure our sustainable, profitable future. Pam’s experience, perspective and leadership will be instrumental in the formal establishment and success of our corporate responsibility function.”
Most recently, Alabaster was senior vice president of corporate communications, sustainable development and public affairs, for L’Oréal USA and holds a master’s degree in sustainability management from Columbia University, in addition to a bachelor of arts degree in journalism from Pepperdine University and an M.B.A. in marketing from New York University.
