Danyelle Boilard-Paul, who was senior vice president of sales and marketing for the fragrance division, has been named senior vice president of sales and education for Groupe Clarins USA, encompassing both the Clarins Brand and fragrance division.

She will report to Jonathan Zrihen, president and chief executive officer of Groupe Clarins USA. In the newly created field structure, two sales vice presidents for the Clarins Brand and two sales vice presidents for the Clarins Fragrance Group will report to Boilard-Paul.

Meanwhile, cosmetics and fragrance marketer Fusion Brands Inc. has appointed Caroline Pieper-Vogt as its new chief executive officer. Pieper-Vogt was, until last week, the senior vice president of group business development at Clarins USA, where she worked for about 12 years.

In her new role, she will be responsible for overseeing research and development, manufacturing, distribution, sales and marketing for Fusion Brands’ current and future product lines.

Said Melnyk: “Caroline brings a fresh, creative and global perspective to Fusion Brands’ product development and branding. With her well-respected management style and extensive industry knowledge, Caroline represents the veteran leadership required to build upon the quality and innovation that defines Fusion’s products’ unique position in the marketplace.”

A 20-year veteran of the beauty industry, Pieper-Vogt rose through the ranks at firms including Lancôme, Lancaster Group Worldwide Inc., Terme di Saturnia, Chanel and Estée Lauder Cos. Inc. before her most recent position at Clarins USA, which she held since last year. She began her career in Clarins’ education department more than 10 years ago, departing for a short stint at Prada Beauty before rejoining Clarins in 2000.
