The Body Shop has made a raft of executive appointments including poaching two directors from rival beauty retailer L’Occitane.

The ethical beauty retailer has appointed Domenico Trizio as its chief operations officer and Lionel Thoreau in the newly created role of global brand director.

Both Trizio and Thoreau have joined the retailer from L’Occitane, where they held the roles of group managing director and global growth officer respectively.

The Body Shop has also poached private equity firm Alvarez and Marsal’s managing director Amy Liddy, who will take up the role of global finance director at the retailer.

The beauty specialist has promoted its chief marketing officer Elen Macaskill to the newly created role of global customer director.

All four of the retailer’s new appointments will report to chief executive David Boynton, who joined the firm in December from menswear specialist Charles Tyrwhitt.

Speaking about The Body Shop’s latest slew of executive appointments, Boynton said: “I am delighted to welcome these outstanding professionals to The Body Shop’s leadership team.

“Domenico, Elen, Lionel and Amy each bring world-class experience to our team as we reinvigorate our brand and strengthen all aspects of our business operations to exceed our customers’ expectations in the 69 countries around the world where we are present.”

The ethical retailer was bought from L’Oréal last year by Brazilian cosmetics giant Natura Group, which has since unveiled ambitions to double The Body Shop’s EBITDA by 2022.
