Sennen Pamich to Lead Coty Professional Beauty North America

Coty has announced the appointment of Sennen Pamich as senior vice president of the company’s Professional Beauty Division in North America.

Pamich will join the North American team at the close of October and report to Sylvie Moreau, president of Coty Professional Beauty. He will be based at the division’s regional headquarters in Calabasas, California.

“Sennen [Pamich] is an exceptional leader with a track record of delivering results, deep beauty and salon professional experience as well as strong entrepreneurial skills,” said Moreau. “He brings the knowledge, skill and passion to lead our North America region and to take our Professional Beauty business to the next level.”

Sennen Pamich brings more than 20 years of experience across many beauty market segments (salon, luxury and consumer retail) to the role. He began his career at Procter & Gamble (P&G), followed by leadership positions at Johnson & Johnson and Bulgari. In 2009, Pamich joined The Colomer Group, where he led the company’s Professional Division for the Americas, before taking on the role of global president for Revlon Professional Beauty after the merger of the two companies in 2013. In early 2017, retail brands were added to his remit.

“I am energized by the opportunity to serve beauty professionals with breakthrough technology, education and inspiration through our portfolio of iconic brands—Wella, OPI, Clairol, Sebastian, Nioxin and ghd—which are leaders in the industry,” said Pamich. “Most of all, I’m thrilled to be part of the team shaping Coty as the challenger in beauty, with a culture and mission that looks to the future.”

Pamich succeeds Salvatore (Sal) Mauceri, who is leaving the company for personal reasons, the company reports. Mauceri has been associated with the brands of Coty Professional Beauty for more roughly 13 years as he joined Wella and Procter & Gamble Salon Professional in 2005. He was appointed the leader of North America Salon Professional in 2014, which included integrating the region’s merger of the P&G Specialty businesses with Coty two years ago.

“We are thankful to Sal for his tremendous contributions to our business, leading North America to sustainable growth, including driving a turnaround of the OPI business. We wish him all the best for the future,” said Moreau.

“I cherish the time I’ve spent with the Professional Beauty organization and the close personal connections I’ve made across the industry,” said Mauceri. “While it’s always hard to move on, I feel the strong call of my family ties on the East Coast, where I will relocate. I know that under Sennen’s leadership, Coty Professional Beauty will reach new heights in North America.”
