• Coty Inc.: tapped Jean Mortier to serve as president of the company’s prestige business, effective immediately. Mortier will manage all products within Coty’s worldwide selective distribution portfolio. He succeeds Michele Scannavini, who was named chief executive officer of Coty in July after serving as president of Coty Prestige for 10 years.

Mortier has served as senior vice president, commercial for Coty since 2005. In his new capacity, he will lead the continued development and growth of the Coty prestige portfolio as well as seek new business ventures and collaborations.

When Coty Inc. purchased Unilever Cosmetics International in July 2005, Mortier was senior vice president there.
