DIGITALISATION AND SUSTAINABILITY

L’Oréal recognises Goulin as a ‘strong and modern leader’, who has successfully orchestrated ‘spectacular business growth’ over the last five years through the building of an agile, high-performing, and customer-centric organisation.

 

“In the past eighteen months, he further accelerated transformational initiatives, such as a swift acceleration on digitalisation and sustainability,” added the beauty giant.

 

To succeed Emmanuel Goulin, Tao Zhang has been appointed Managing Director at L’Oréal Travel Retail Asia Pacific. Zhang also began her career in 2000 for L’Oréal Luxe China, where she successfully moved from Management Trainee to Brand General Manager of Helena Rubinstein and Giorgio Armani China.

 

She then moved to Paris at Lancôme International in charge of the brand’s international retail and business development for two years prior to become Deputy General Manager for YSL.

 

ZHANG ‘STRONG AND CHARISMATIC’

Zhang then joined L’Oréal Travel Retail Asia Pacific five years ago as Lancôme General Manager. One year ago, she was promoted to the role of Managing Director at L’Oréal Luxe Travel Retail Asia Pacific.
