Estée Lauder Companies announced on Wednesday the appointment of Quentin Roach to the role of senior vice president and chief procurement officer, effective immediately.
Roach will report to Roberto Canevari, executive vice president, global supply chain and join the company’s global supply chain leadership team. In the role, the executive will oversee the company’s strategic supplier relationships and enhance end-to-end synchronization across the company’s supplier network.
Quentin will also oversee third-party manufacturing procurement activities while partnering closely with the company’s global manufacturing team to integrate its external and internal network.
He will also help with the research and analysis of new supply base channels, potential technological innovations, cross-enterprise supplier and product standardization, expanded partnerships, and process improvements. Roach will also look at further accelerating the firm’s initiatives concerning responsible sourcing and supplier inclusion and diversity, said the U.S. cosmetics giant in a press release.
Roach joins Estée Lauder from Mondelēz International, where he served as senior vice president, global supply chain and chief procurement officer. Before that, he held supply chain and procurement leadership roles at Merck & Co., Bristol Myers Squibb, Bausch + Lomb, and General Motors. He currently serves on the board of directors for US Foods.
”Quentin is a seasoned leader with more than 30 years of cross-industry experienced in supply chain and procurement and a proven record in value creation, growth, and transformation,” said Canevari.
“I am confident that Quentin’s vast experience and expertise, solution-oriented leadership style, and passion for empowering teams to deliver performance will greatly enhance The Estée Lauder Companies’ procurement efforts.”
Last month, Estée Lauder Companies announced the departure of its chairman emeritus Leonard A. Lauder, who said he will not be standing for re-election to the board at the firm’s annual general meeting in November.
