Estée Lauder Companies announces supply chain leadership change
The Estée Lauder Companies has announced that Gregory Polcer, its executive vice president for the global supply chain, has decided to retire.
He will be succeeded by Roberto Canevari who will take up the role on 1 May, although Polcer will remain with the business until 1 July to ensure a smooth transition.
Canevarie most recently served as Unilever’s executive vice president of supply chain Europe where he oversaw end-to-end supply chain operations for the company’s European business. Prior to that, he worked with Burberry for seven years as chief supply chain officer.
In his new position, Canevari will report directly to Fabrizio Freda, Estée Lauder Companies’ president and chief executive.
Freda said: “Greg has led ELC’s global supply chain with a great blend of strategic insight and innovative thinking. His genuinely positive energy, enthusiastic leadership style and unique interdisciplinary expertise will be truly missed.”
Speaking of Canevari’s appointment, he added: “He is a highly respected and talented supply chain expert and global leader who has successfully helmed and transformed the end-to-end supply chain organisations of several global, luxury, and brand-led companies. Roberto brings a unique combination of operational expertise and creative passion to ELC. I look forward to partnering closely with him to continue to innovate and improve our world-class supply chain organisation.”
