Sephora Names Recent Global Chief Human Resources Officer –

PARIS — A change is afoot in Sephora’s global chief human resources officer position. Maria Farrow, who has held the role for 4 years, will retire and be succeeded by Sandra Rimbot, currently group director of talent management at parent company LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, in accordance with an internal memo seen by WWD.

The memo was signed jointly by Chris de Lapuente, present and chief executive officer of LVMH Selective Retailing, and Guillaume Motte, president and CEO of Sephora.

The manager change will likely be effective on Monday.

“Maria has planned this decision for a while, to be able to dedicate more time to her family who lives outside of France, and for other passions,” the memo stated.

De Lapuente and Motte wrote that Farrow has played a major role at Sephora and led its HR through some difficult times.

“COVID[-19] stood out as a moment when HR really stepped up and led from the front, at a time when none of us knew what was going to occur the subsequent day,” they continued. “Our HR organization demonstrated courage and great empathy, and since of their dedication and exertions, we got here through it stronger than we were before.”

The executives highlighted some global initiatives rolled out under Farrow, including My Sephora Profession, the introduction of the worldwide worker value proposition and most recently Sephora’s global corporate and profession website, the retailer’s first worldwide platform.

In addition they lauded her for leaving a legacy of collaboration and of breaking down silos.

Rimbot, who will report back to Motte and becomes a part of Sephora’s global leadership team, has spent almost 30 years in HR positions at LVMH, Moët Hennessy, Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin, Krug and — prior to that — Disneyland Paris.

Before joining Sephora, Farrow served as HR officer at LVMH Beauty for six years and vp HR EMEA for Kellogg Company for 4 years. The manager spent greater than 23 years at Procter & Gamble, in accordance with her LinkedIn profile.
