Kerstin Florian names Julie Andrews as president

Spa and skincare brand Kerstin Florian has appointed Julie Andrews as president, effective immediately.

Andrews previously held the position of director of global business development at the brand and before that, director of marketing and public relations.

Her new role as president will see Andrews responsible for overseeing all departments including global sales, marketing, PR, product development and creative.

Kerstin Florian, founder and chief executive of the eponymous skincare brand, commented: “Julie is the best person to lead the next phase of our brand. She has great instinct, knowledge and strong insight into our product, philosophy and lifestyle and she has been key member of our team and family helping to build our success for many years.”

“I am looking to continue to expand our work with the best spa partners and create new and innovative effective products that promote wellness for skin and body”, said Andrews.

Next for the brand will be the 2017 launch of Kerstin Florian Beauty, a small, certified organic collection of make-up with skincare benefits that was created by late chief creative officer Charlene Florian, who passed away in February.
