Hieronimus to head Selective Divisions.

Jean-Jacques Lebel, president of the Consumer Products Division at L'Oréal is retiring effective July 1, the company announced.

Nicolas Hieronimus has been named to the new position of president of the Selective Divisions, including the Luxury, Active Cosmetics and Professional Products branches plus The Body Shop.

“This leadership role supervising the Selective Divisions of L’Oréal is created in order to accelerate the group’s development in all retail distribution networks, leveraging its expertise in each of the distribution channels,” the company stated.

Hieronimus was appointed president of L’Oréal Luxe in January 2011 and will maintain that position too.

Lebel, who joined L’Oréal in 1981, has spearheaded the Consumer Products Division since 2008. Marc Menesguen, currently executive vice president of strategic marketing, succeeds him.

Other changes include Frédéric Rozé being appointed executive vice president of the Americas zone, including North and Latin America. He will continue to be chief executive officer of L’Oréal USA.

Alexandre Popoff was named executive vice president of the Eastern Europe zone. He most recently was executive vice president of the Latin America zone.

Jochen Zaumseil is to become executive vice president of the Western Europe zone. Until now, he has held the post of executive vice president of L’Oréal’s Asia-Pacific zone.

Alexis Perakis-Valat will succeed Zaumseil in his current role and continue serving as L’Oréal China’s CEO.
