“France has historically been the center of beauty and luxury goods in Europe. Our acquisition of ieS Labo, Inolex Provence in Oraison, France in 2015 and our growing European sales office represent the value we place in being close to the source of our materials and to our partners,” notes CEO David Plimpton.
The recent addition of Anais Alemagna, technical sales manager, is said to underscore the company’s commitment to enhance its client-facing resources in key beauty care markets. Alemagna joins the company with more than eight years of cosmetic industry experience, having worked in numerous beauty care companies, including Dr. Straetmans, Unipex Group, Schulke France and L’Oréal. She holds a Masters in Fine Chemistry in Cosmetology and an undergraduate degree in biochemistry, with a specialization in marketing and communications.
In addition, Mathilde Dufresne joined the team earlier this year as commercial sales assistant. Dufresne brings her experience in procurement from ieS Labo to serve as a vital point person for customer service and European sales. She holds a National Arts Plastics Diploma from Ecole regionale des Beaux Arts-Saint Etienne.
