In her new role, Magee will lead North America and global sales, focusing on sales management and strategic marketing at retail.

Chief Executive Officer Bryce Goldman said Kopari Beauty is in a growth phase and looking to expand its innovations in the beauty industry. Goldman stated that Magee's "experience in sales and retail strategy... will play an important part in our retail strategy and structure."

Most recently, Magee was the VP of Sales for Too Faced. Before this, she was VP of Sales at T3, and a regional sales director for Coty's Philosophy for four and a half years. She also held that same title with LVMH's Fresh, having got her start in the beauty industry with Clinique.

Magee holds a Bachelor's in Business Administration, Business, Management, Marketing, and Related Support Services from California State University in Sacramento.

She said she was looking towards expanding Kopari's presence and driving success across all channels.

Kopari launched in 2015. Its coconut-based beauty products use small-batch coconut oil from farms in the Philippines and are sustainably produced in Southern California. The company was founded by certified organic chef, Kiana Cabell, beauty industry veterans Bryce and Gigi Goldman, and health entrepreneur and co-founder of Suja Juice, James Brennan.

Magee's appointment is effective immediately.
