"Adelle has an incredible track record of challenging the status quo and turning insights into new opportunities and markets," commented Laurent Combredet, president and chief executive officer of SENTÉ. "Adelle is a tremendous addition to SENTÉ and I look forward to partnering with her as we further build SENTÉ's position in the exciting physician dispensed skincare market."
Walker brings to SENTÉ over 15 years of dermatology and aesthetics industry experience and is known for her work in building new markets with portfolios of products to take leadership positions. Holding U.S. commercial and global marketing positions at Allergan, SkinMedica and Syneron Candela, Walker has deep roots in medical dermatology, skincare, aesthetic injectables and a wide range of laser systems. As the chief marketing officer (CMO), Walker will take an executive leadership role in defining pipeline strategy along with internal and external portfolio planning. Her commercialization leadership will span across all facets on communications from marketing to professional relations, education and consumer promotion.
"SENTÉ is poised for breakout growth now that its novel Heparan Sulfate Analog skincare line has grabbed the attention of physicians and consumers nationwide. There are very few novel molecules in the physician dispensed skincare market, therefore when you have a distinct advantage as SENTÉ does, you can position yourself to grab a strong share of the market. The team is incredibly talented and I look forward to leading them to accelerate growth," said Walker.
