Coty has appointed Mario Reis as EVP, supply chain, effective May 1. Based in Geneva, Reis will join the executive committee and report to CEO Michele Scannavini.
Reis will replace Darryl McCall who will work on the transition and other projects to ensure continuity in supply chain performance before his retirement Dec. 31.
Reis built his career during his tenure at Danone, where he held several senior executive positions within Worldwide Operations from 1996-2014. In his various supply chain roles within Danone, Reis was successful in implementing best practices and synergies across divisions. Most recently, Reis served as managing director of Danone South Africa, where his leadership is credited with resulting in strong acceleration in profitability and growth during a five-year period. Prior to that, Reis worked at Mars and Bain & Co in various business roles from 1986-1996.
"I am very excited to welcome Mario as Coty's new head of supply chain," said Scannavini. "His successful and diversified experience in the supply chain and commercial fields brings to Coty a unique perspective and strong skill set for a best in class end-to-end supply chain."
McCall served as EVP, global operations and executive committee member. He now plans to put his energy toward increasing the success of minority students in math, science, engineering and technology, according to the company. The company also credited McCall for spearheading the Leading Bold Change Initiative, a volunteer-based employee engagement program used to inspire creative and innovative solutions within the work place.
"Along with Coty's Executive Team, I would like to acknowledge Darryl's many talents and thank him for his outstanding contributions to our success. We very much valued his leadership in building a strong and reliable supply chain. He will be missed and we wish him all the best for the future," added Scannavini.
