JAFRA Cosmetics has appointed former Cole Haan executive James Christl as Chief Financial Officer.
Christl brings more than 23 years of senior finance experience to the beauty company. For 15 years, he has served as CFO for global companies dealing in retail and wholesale. Previously, he held the top finance post at Cole Haan, the global lifestyle brand specializing in footwear and accessories. Christl began his career with Deloitte & Touche.
“I am very happy to have James on our team,” said Mauro Schnaidman, President and CEO of JAFRA. “He has the experience and strategic expertise that are essential to JAFRA taking our business to the next level.”
In addition to heading up JAFRA’s finance organization across 16 markets, Christl will provide leadership over the IT organization at the California-based company. He is the second addition to JAFRA’s executive team this month, following the appointment of Clint McKinlay as Vice President of Sales for International Markets.
