The Personal Care Products Council (PCPC) announced it has promoted Lisa Powers to executive vice president for public affairs and communications, the organization’s top communications position.
“For the past eight years, Lisa has been a tireless advocate for our member companies, their commitment to safety, quality and innovation, and the consumers who trust and use our products every day,” said Lezlee Westine, the Council’s president and CEO. “This promotion reflects Lisa’s exceptional background in developing strategic public information initiatives, both nationally and globally, on a variety of issues facing our industry.”
In her position, Powers oversees the development and execution of strategic communications and public affairs programs, including media relations, issues management and the integration of communications with the needs of the Council’s more than 600 member companies, which manufacture and distribute the majority of cosmetic and personal care products sold in the U.S. Powers joined the organization in 2006 as vice president of communications and public affairs and was promoted to senior vice president in 2012.
