Richard Pinabel is Armani beauty’s new global brand president. The executive, with 25 years of beauty experience, succeeds Véronique Gautier in the role. As previously reported, she has left the brand after having led it for 13 years.
Recall that Gautier joined the L’Oréal-owned brand in 2010 from Jean Paul Gaultier, after serving as Chair and President for two years.
Prior to this, she also held roles at Chanel Beauty and Paco Rabanne at Puig, as well as Cartier and Hermès Parfums.
“I feel privileged to have driven such iconic brands and talented people in executive functions in the luxury business, and today I am looking forward to this exciting chapter ahead, saying Sì to new beginnings,” said Gautier in a Linkedin post.
“Taking Armani Beauty to new heights over the past decade has been an experience like no other.”
Gautier went on to thank the company’s eponymous founder Giorgio Armani, who she said had been a “privilege” to work with.
“Giorgio Armani is simply a legend and working with him has been a gift,” she added.
