Leadership Changes at LVMH's Kendo

LVMH’s beauty incubator Kendo is shaking up its leadership team. Starting January 2020, current senior vice president, global general manager Kristin Walcott will step up as Kendo’s new president. Walcott began her career at L’Oréal Paris, and later joined Sephora where she worked for seven years until 2014 when she stepped into her current role at Kendo.

Kendo is the small but powerful incubator behind many well-known celebrity brands such as Kat Von D, Marc Jacobs and Fenty Beauty. The company expertly partners with original celebrity-founded brands.
