NEW YORK — As anticipated, Kevin Boyce has been tapped as president and chief executive officer of Unilever Cosmetics International, filling the posts vacated by Paulanne Mancuso in May.
A company announcement Friday confirmed a report in WWD on May 30 that Boyce, president and ceo of Unilever Canada, was Mancuso’s likely successor.
Boyce, 47, has been with Unilever since 1986. His first position was vice president, marketing, for Chesebrough-Ponds Canada. He has since held senior executive positions in the U.K. and Italy, primarily in personal care.
New York-based UCI, a division of Unilever plc, manufactures Calvin Klein, Cerruti, Lagerfeld, Valentino, Chloé, Vera Wang, Nautica and BCBG Max Azria fragrances.
Charles Strauss, business group president, had overseen UCI during the interim.
