Coty Inc. has been named the Most Innovative Company of 2011 by the Consumer Goods Technology (CGT) Group. Recognition is determined by CGT Group's board of directors, which includes executives from Alberto Culver, P&G, Unilever, Nestle, Accenture, Miller-Coors, Gartner Group, DelMonte Foods and Rubbermaid.

Three of Coty's products were recognized as being the most innovative: Rimmel Lash Accelerator, for its Lash Growth Technology; Sally Hanson Salon Manicure, for the first encapsulation in nail lacquer; and Sally Hanson Special Effects, for its patented film technology, according to CGT Group.

At the helm of this great company for 10 years now, I have seen first-hand the drive and creativity that embodies all those who work at Coty.
