He executed a complete reboot of the brand identity alongside founder, from resetting creative and strategic vision, leading the re-launch of the brand’s website and DTC platform, dramatically expanding the category footprint and product pipeline to launching strategic consumer marketing initiatives. 
Dabbagh’s earlier experience also includes a role as a former marketing executive at L’Oréal USA, leading brand and marketing strategy for L’Oréal Paris, Maybelline and Garnier where he demonstrated an ability to adapt and pivot to changing business environments, market dynamics, product categories, channels of distribution, and marketing strategies to achieve business growth and maximize brand value.
