Hermès names two new members to executive committee
Hermès announced on Monday the appointment of two new members to its executive committee.
As of March 1, Sharon MacBeath, group human resources director, and Agnès de Villers, president and CEO of Hermès Parfum et Beauté will join the executive body.
MacBeath joined the French house in June 2019 with experience working for major international companies in the distribution, services, and industrial sectors. She has also been a member of the group’s supervisory board and its governance committees.
Likewise, de Villers joined Hermès in 2015 to intensify the house’s endeavours as a perfume artisan and artist. In March 2020, she launched beauty – the house’s sixteenth métier – a new category that has been recognized as a true growth driver for the group.
Axel Dumas, CEO of Hermès and sixth-generation family member, said the decision was made “to broaden the composition of the executive committee and enrich it with new people and expertise.”
The company added that “these two appointments are an important step in the development of Hermès and bear witness to the broadening of skills and personalities within the executive committee.”
MacBeath and de Villers join nine other members of the executive committee, whose roles remain unchanged.
Earlier this month, Hermès reported an outstanding 2021 financial year with growth of 41.8 percent reaching 8.9 billion euros.
