Switzerland-based personal care and wellness company Arbonne International has named Jean-David Schwartz as its new CEO.

The company made this decision following the announcement of the current CEO Kay Zanotti’s intention to retire.

Prior to this role, Schwartz worked with Groupe Rocher, which acquired Arbonne in March this year.

He also served as the CEO of Yves Rocher North America and possesses international experience, having worked in countries such as Africa, Spain, Canada and the US.

“We want to focus on sharing Arbonne’s mission of healthy living inside and out in bigger and broader ways than ever before.”

Schwartz said: “I was pleased to be the key liaison during the Groupe Rocher acquisition of Arbonne earlier this year. All of us at Groupe Rocher have been very impressed with the amazing Arbonne culture and community.

“I am now excited to lead a new journey at Arbonne, to work to evolve and expand the brand, and ensure that the next stage is the best one yet.

“I am confident that we can turn the steady growth into truly extraordinary results. We want to focus on sharing Arbonne’s mission of healthy living inside and out in bigger and broader ways than ever before.”

In addition, the company has named Astrid Van Ruymbeke as its new chief financial officer (CFO) and Vincent Taglioni as operations vice-president.

Ruymbeke will succeed CFO Gretchen Price, while Taglioni will replace current chief operating officer (COO) Glenn Klages following his retirement.

Prior to joining Arbonne, Ruymbeke and Taglioni worked in executive roles with Groupe Rocher.
