“She may also keep fostering collaborations across regions and inspiring best-practice sharing, while staying accountable for Sephora’s purpose and sustainability strategy,” it continued.

“She has also been strongly accelerating our commitment to sustainability, diversity, equity and inclusion in North America and at a world level,” he continued. “I’m sure she will likely be instrumental in continuing to further construct excitement and engagement inside our global beauty community.”

Yeh joined Sephora as CMO for the Americas, and prior to that spent 4 years at Gap and 4 years at Goal.
