Sally Beauty Supply LLC, has hired Sharon Leite as president, effective Feb. 1.
Leite has held a variety of positions at home goods retailer Pier 1 Imports since 2007, most recently executive vice president of sales, customer experience and real estate.
“Sally Beauty has taken great strides to articulate its value proposition to the consumer and improve the in-store shopping experience, resulting in a strong foundation for continued success,” Leite said.
Leite has also worked for Bath & Body Works, Gap Inc. and the Walt Disney Co.
The last president of the professional beauty retailer was Tobin Anderson, who resigned in 2014. Before that, the company’s executive chairman, Gary Winterhalter, held the role. Winterhalter took over as president in 2006 after Sally was spun out of Alberto Culver, which was later acquired by Unilever.
