Brazilian natural beauty manufacturer and marketer Natura &Co (owner of The Body Shop and Aēsop) has announced that Jessica Herrin – CEO & Founder of Stella & Dot Family Brands – has been nominated as the new member of its Board of Directors.
“Natura & Co has made a positive impact in the lives of its sales field and employees and been a model company on social values in Latin America and beyond. Their mission, to create flexible income opportunities for women, is a mission close to my heart and it’s an honour to serve on the board of directors,” says Herrin.
After graduating with a degree in Economics from Stanford University, Herrin joined two successful tech startups before continuing her education at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. At the age of 24, she co-founded the leading wedding site WeddingChannel.com.
She started Stella & Dot out of her living room while she was pregnant and had another full-time job. From there, it has grown into a family of three women’s lifestyle brands (Ever Skincare, KEEP Collective, and Stella & Dot) in six countries.
“Jessica has a remarkable background and a very strong connection with our values and purposes. She conceived and consolidated a successful, innovative business that has had a powerful impact on society”, says Guilherme Leal, co-chairman of the Board.
“Taking Social Selling to the next level, Jessica has achieved different recognitions, including publishing the bestselling book Find Your Extraordinary. Her vision of female entrepreneurship and robust experience in social selling will contribute towards solutions to drive Natura &Co’s different businesses”, states Roberto Marques, executive chairman of Natura &Co.
