“Together, we will continue strengthening Sephora’s brand partnerships, innovating and delighting clients with the best experience and assortment of prestige beauty products whether they are shopping in our stores or across our outstanding digital platforms," Rougeot said of his new role.
The update to the beauty company's executive suite comes shortly after Sephora released its newest rollout of Beauty Insider benefits for 2019.
