PARIS — More top management changes are afoot at the Pierre Fabre Group.
Less than two months after the announcement that Eric Ducournau had been named chief executive officer of the pharmaceutical and cosmetics group, effective July 2, it said that Núria Perez-Cullell will become ceo of the group’s Dermo-Cosmetics branch, starting Aug. 20.
Perez-Cullell succeeds Ducournau in the oversight of the management of activities in France, the coordination and implementation of the global strategy of the dermo-cosmetics division’s brands, its manufacturing operations, research and development, and product development.
The 45-year-old executive joined Pierre Fabre Group in 1998. There, she has served as product manager for Klorane, chairman assistant to Pierre Fabre, then the Eau Thermale Avène brand’s marketing director for France and for international.
In July 2013, Perez-Cullell was named general manager of Eau Thermale Avène, which is the top-selling brand in the dermo-cosmetics market in Europe and Asia, and the biggest brand inside the Pierre Fabre Dermo-Cosmetics division, according to the company.
The executive will be based at Pierre Fabre Dermo-Cosmetics headquarters in Lavaur, France.
The Pierre Fabre Group is the second largest pharmaceuticals group in France, where it is market leader for over-the-counter products sold in pharmacies, and is the second largest dermo-cosmetics laboratory worldwide. Its portfolio also includes René Furterer and Ducray, among other brands.
In 2017, the group generated 2.32 billion euros, of which 62 percent was made outside of France and 61 percent came from its dermo-cosmetics division.
