The Avon Foundation for Women today announced the elections of Amy Greene as chair and Natalie Deacon as president of the Avon Foundation Board of Directors.
Greene was recently appointed vice president, Investor and Stakeholder Relations for Avon. Deacon was recently appointed executive director, Corporate Affairs and Sustainability. Working with NGOs and Avon teams across the world, they’ll lead the Foundation to its next phase of development as Avon looks to open up more opportunities to positively impact and improve women’s lives.
Over the last six decades Avon and the Avon Foundation have contributed over $1 billion to the causes that matter most to women, with a focus on breast cancer and violence against women and girls. Moving forward the Foundation will build on this global effort, with an increased focus on creating opportunities for learning, development and entrepreneurial skills.
“I’m delighted to have two people of Amy and Natalie’s caliber and commitment leading the Foundation into the future,” said Avon Chief Executive Officer Jan Zijderveld.
Avon has recently announced the appointment of Nina Sebecic Crnolatac as general manager for the German market. She has over twenty years of experience leading direct sales and network marketing, with a strong supply chain background.
In line with Crnolatac’s appointment, Germany has transitioned from Central Europe to the Western Europe cluster, under the leadership of Matthieu Comard, group vice president of Western Europe.
“Our goal is to accelerate our growth in the German market by implementing Avon’s Open Up strategy at pace,” said Comard. “I’m delighted to welcome Nina to Avon to drive this charge.”
