Clichy, 17 October, 2017 - Lucia Dumas has been appointed Executive Vice President of Communication and Public Affairs of the Group and will join the L’Oréal’s Executive Committee at the beginning of January 2018.
She succeeds Isabel Marey-Semper, who, after eight great years in the Group, wished to pursue her professional career outside the company. Thanks to her high-level scientific background, Isabel Marey-Semper led L'Oréal's Advanced Research for 5 years, making it increasingly strategic, more open to the outside world, more digital and more international. In 2015, she became a member of the Executive Committee in charge of Communication and Public Affairs while at the same time assuming the General Management of the L'Oréal Foundation and leading the Group's “Simplicity” project. We would like to thank her warmly for the importance of her contribution and the solid foundation that she leaves in these various activities.
Since 2012, Lucia Dumas has been Vice President of Communication for Essilor where she has designed and deployed a brand identity for the Group and helped increase its visibility around the world. She previously held the same responsibilities within the Rhodia Group for five years and in particular, accompanied the implementation of the merger with Solvay, after having been in charge of Press Relations.
A graduate of the European Business School in Marketing and International Strategies, she began her career at the Moulinex Group where she held various internal and external communication functions.
The diversity and richness of Lucia's expertise, combined with her knowledge of industrial sectors where innovation and technology play a key role, are all assets in continuing to increase L'Oréal's reputation vis-à-vis all of its stakeholders and to spread its image throughout the world.
L’Oréal has devoted itself to beauty for over 100 years.
