The first night of WWD’s Beauty CEO summit kicked off with a spirited discussion between Sephora’s key executives. The energy in the Ponce de Leon ballroom was palpable as a crowd of more than 350 industry executives — from Jane Lauder to Unilever’s Esi Eggleston Bracey — listened to global chairman and chief executive officer Chris de Lapuente and chairman and ceo of the Americas Calvin McDonald.
