As Sephora continues its efforts to expand internationally, the beauty retailer has appointed Guillaume Motte as its new president and CEO.

Prior to his appointment, Motte served at Sephora’s parent company LVMH Fashion Group as the deputy chief executive under chairman and CEO Sidney Toledano.

For Motte, the move to Sephora is a seemingly familiar one, as he previously served as the company’s CEO and president of Europe and the Middle East for three years starting in 2018. Prior to joining LVMH, Motte was the CEO of French menswear retailer Celio. Before that, he was chief executive at Dubai-based lifestyle retail company AI Tayer Trends and managing director at Fnac, part of PPR (now known as Kering).

Motte replaces Chris de Lapuente, who will continue on as chairman and CEO of LVMH’s retailing division, which includes Sephora, Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche, DFS, Starboard Cruise Services and La Grande Épicerie.

“I am delighted to welcome Guillaume back to Sephora as president and CEO,” said de Lapuente in a post on LVMH’s LinkedIn. “His experiences over the past two years in LVMH Fashion Group, alongside Sidney Toledano, have broadened his prestige brand-building experience and deepened his already extensive retail and business skills at a global level. I have no doubt he will continue to build Sephora into the extraordinary premium beauty retailer we envision.”
