In his new role, Baltussen will lead Coty’s Procurement team with a strong focus on reducing complexity and costs in order to unlock opportunities for reinvestment and profit expansion. This supports the company’s transformation towards a better and healthier business.
Baltussen brings with him a wealth of senior global procurement experience, having spent the last nine years with Mars, where he progressed through the procurement organization to his current role as global vice president, Procurement and Sustainability at Mars Wrigley. In this role, Baltussen was responsible for all direct and indirect procurement and consistently delivered significant savings annually. Prior to that, Pascal spent nine years at AB InBev. Baltussen has lived and worked in several global locations including US, China, UK, Belgium and his native Netherlands.
While the Procurement function and Supply Operations are now two dedicated organizations, with this appointment, along with Jones as global chief supply officer, this completes the refinement of the leadership for the Coty Supply Chain. Jones has responsibility for Manufacturing, Planning, Logistics and Distribution, and will work hand in hand with Pascal.
“Pascal’s deep experience in Procurement and track record of success will be a great addition to the Coty Executive Committee, and we are looking forward to having him on board soon,” said Laubies. “Today’s appointment is an important step in supporting our ongoing transformation and our strategic roadmap for future growth. Reducing complexity and costs will drive operational leadership and unlock opportunities for reinvestment and profit expansion.”
