The luxury beauty Buyers’ Club, Beauty Pie, have appointed Kevin Cornils as their new CEO.
Launched by Marcia Kilgore back in 2016, the brands mission was to challenge the old definition of ‘luxury’ and blowing the lid off the ‘mainstream’ luxury beauty industry, and give members insider access to shop for products direct, from the best suppliers in the industry, without paying the typical industry markups.
New CEO Kevin Cornils is an experienced entrepreneurial CEO and business leader who has cofounded, scaled, sold and listed market-leading businesses across Europe and the US in the digital services, media, retail and fitness sectors.
“I’m delighted to be joining Beauty Pie at this exciting phase of its growth as it continues to disrupt the traditional beauty market. I’m especially pleased to be joining Marcia in the entrepreneurial journey and am inspired by her proven ability to build brands that people love and products that people want to buy. I look forward to working with the team to accelerate their success in the UK, US, and new international markets.” Kevin Cornils commented.
Most recently, Cornils served as the Chief Commercial Officer of Peloton, overseeing the brand’s sales, marketing, and international growth strategy and was a key member of the leadership team that led Peloton to its $8bn IPO. His previous experience includes building Match.com into the leading European online dating brand and Glasses Direct/MyOptique into the largest European online eyewear business. As BEAUTY PIE expands into the US and other international markets, Cornils will pull from a powerful playbook.
Beauty Pie Founder Marcia Kilgore added “I’m really excited to welcome Kevin on board as our CEO. He has the vision, leadership, and scaling experience that BEAUTY PIE will need for our next stage of growth and will be instrumental in our quest to get millions of beauty product lovers more for their money!”
