Johnson & Johnson carried out a restructure of its beauty department over the summer, according to a report published by WWD, resulting in the departure of some key personnel.
Sebastien Guillon, Global President of Beauty, and Michelle Freyre, US President of Beauty have both left the company. Deeptha Khanna now heads up the division, having been promoted to Global President, Skin Health and the Office of Marketing Value, while Duda Kertesz was named US President of Skin Health, reflecting Johnson & Johnson’s focus on the skin care category going forward.
“Recently, Johnson & Johnson Consumer Health reinvigorated our business model, streamlining priorities to focus on high-growth and high potential consumer impact segments,” a spokesperson for the company told WWD. “Our business unit formerly known as Beauty has been broadened and reshaped in Skin Health.”
