The L’Oréal Group is finalizing the geographic reorganization of its commercial zones, which began at the end of 2020. Following the retirement of Alexandre Popoff, President of L’Oréal Eastern Europe Zone, L’Oréal creates a new Europe Zone to be led by Vianney Derville, currently President of L’Oréal Western Europe Zone.

Under his leadership, the two former zones of Western Europe and Eastern Europe will come together as one single Zone. According to L’Oréal, this organizational change has been designed to put in place the optimum conditions to help drive future growth and represents the last stage in the reorganization of the Group’s Zone structure.

Vianney Derville joined the Group in 1992, as a product manager in the Consumer Products Division in France for Lascad. In 1999, he was next appointed as General Manager for the CPD Division in Japan, a position he held for four years. Following his success in Japan, he was subsequently appointed as General Manager for L’Oréal Spain in 2004.

After returning to Paris in 2007, Vianney Derville held a number of different roles, culminating in being appointed Head of International CPD markets in 2013. Vianney then moved to the US in 2014 as head of the Consumer Products Division. Most recently, in 2016 he was appointed President of the Western Europe Zone, and joined the Group’s Executive Committee.

This appointment is effective July 1st, 2021.
