L’Oréal India appoints Amit Jain as Managing Director

L’Oréal India has appointed Amit Jain as its new Managing Director. Jain will succeed Jean-Christophe Letellier, who will shift within the L’Oréal group after a five-year stint in the country.

Jain, who will join from August this year, will be L’Oréal India’s first Indian managing director after the French cosmetics giant entered the country in 1991. In his last role, he was the MD - North-West Europe for Akzo Nobel, based in Amsterdam. Jain has also worked in companies such as ICI, Coca- Cola and Viacom over the last three decades.

Talking about the appointment, Pierre-Yves Arzel, Vice President - South Asia Pacific Zone, L’Oréal, said, “We believe that Amit’s rich global experience with a deep understanding of India, transformational leadership skills and inclusive personality will be an important asset in further developing L’Oréal’s business in India. His mission is to build on our rich talent base and global brands, to make L’Oréal India an engine for growth in Asia.”

The company said under Jean-Christophe Letellier's leadership, India saw significant sales growth, revolutionized digital and e-commerce platforms, and achieved ambitious targets in skill development and environmental sustainability.
