Ex Starbucks executive to take over as Sephora CEO

LVMH has appointed ex Starbuck executive Martin Brok as president and CEO of Sephora.

Brok will start his new role on Monday, succeeding Chris de la Puente. Chris will remain a member of the LVMH executive committee and “take on additional responsibilities at a later date.”

Under Chris’ leadership, Sephora wholesales have tripled and achieved a strong omnichannel presence, according to the company.

“The appointment of Martin Brok marks a new era for the company as a period of transformation begins for the beauty retail industry, in particular with the rise of online sales.”

Brok had worked at Starbucks Corporation as president of Europe, the Middle East and Africa since 2016, after holding general management roles at Nike.
