ULTA Beauty has a new CEO and board director as of July 1: Mary Dillon. She replaced interim CEO Dennis K. Eck, who held that position since February when Chuck Rubin stepped down as president and CEO to become CEO at Michaels Stores.
Celebrity hairstylist José Eber has launched his namesake collection of high-tech styling tools in 550 ULTA Beauty stores across the United States. The initial launch includes the Infrared Blow Dryer, the Therapy RX Conditioning Tool, the World’s Fastest Flat Iron, the Wet or Dry Styling Iron and the 32mm Clipless Curling Iron. Prices range from $119 to $169.
The board of directors has appointed Dennis K. Eck, current non-executive chairman of the board of directors, as interim CEO. Rubin has also agreed to assist the company during the transition.
Beauty guru Maria Hatzistefanis' NIP + FAB brand recently launched in all ULTA Beauty sites across the United States with three new products. The skincare and bodycare line is from the United Kingdom, and is marketed as offering effective yet affordable products that are formulated to treat each area of the body that has special nip, tuck and slimming needs.
It originally launched in winter 2011 exclusively at Target stores.
