Summit Cosmetics Europe appoints Carole Lajous chief executive

French speciality ingredients distributor Summit Cosmetics Europe has appointed Carole Lajous as president and chief executive with immediate effect.

The Paris firm said with over 30 years of experience in the raw materials industry, Lajous brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise.

She previously managed Cognis France and Laboratoires Serobiologiques, a producer of natural and green active ingredients for cosmetics and nutrition.

This company was acquired by BASF in 2010, and Lajous played a key role in the successful integration of Cognis France into BASF.

She subsequently held the position of CEO for various companies within the BASF Group.

Eager to develop her skills within companies specializing in cosmetics and natural ingredients, she founded her own company, where she was a senior advisor and member of the board of directors of Roquette Frères, participating in operational missions linked to mergers and acquisitions projects.

“Moving to Summit Cosmetics Europe enables her to manage a committed team and ensure the growth of this historic company, with a deep commitment to maintaining and accelerating partnerships with suppliers and customers,” a spokesman said.
