Teresa Mordoh has been appointed CEO of Dermalogica South Africa, effective 1 March.
After a successful period internationally within the beauty industry, Mordoh brings a wealth of experience back to her native South Africa.
Says Mordoh: “It is with great pride that I join the dynamic Dermalogica Tribe and I’m honoured to be given the opportunity to lead the world’s number one professional skincare brand.
“I have been fortunate to have enjoyed a 20-year career in the beauty industry with global and local experience in marketing, sales and business development with several multi-national corporations, including Unilever, Revlon, Avon, Nando’s, L’Oreal Paris and most recently, with a major retail group in Dubai.”
Prior to her time in Dubai, Mordoh worked in Paris with L’Oreal International, within the commercial division in retail category strategy and channel management.
As Mordoh turns her attention to the South African beauty industry once more, so too does she re-affirm her continued commitment to supporting female empowerment within the sector. “I am passionate about the empowerment of women and the professional salon industry has enabled so many women to own their own businesses as successful entrepreneurs,” she explains. “I firmly believe that through collaborative partnerships we can continue to support our partners in this endeavour and deliver positive growth in the professional and retail categories.”
Commenting on Mordoh’s appointment, Cherie ten Hope, former CEO and business partner, says: “We are thrilled to welcome Teresa to the helm of Dermalogica – as well as all the knowledge and experience she brings with her. Within our organisation, the professional skin therapists who prescribe our products and change skins through their professional craft, have a particularly special place in our hearts. We knew we needed an equally special leader to drive and deliver increased growth and harness and support these important connections in these exciting and challenging times.”
