Algenist has announced Rose Fernandez as its new CEO.
Fernandez, who previously served as the company’s senior vice president, has been with Algenist since 2016. She brings more than 20 years of skin care sales, brand marketing and digital experience to the role; previously, she has worked at organizations including Jurlique, Kate Sommerville and Murad.
The position was previously held by Frederic Stoeckel, who resigned to return to his native France and spend more time with his family. He will remain with the company as a member of its board.
“I’m honored to take on a greater leadership role within Algenist,” said Fernandez. “Since starting with the brand, the focus has been on growing our share in the marketplace by leveraging the brand’s clear strengths: sustainably produced algae, and clean and sophisticated formulas that deliver results in 10 days, every time. We have a team of people that are passionate about our customers and our products, which is paralleled with our ambition to lead us to ultimate success.”
