Previously the managing director of the UK for the company, Noella Gabriel has been promoted to president of Elemis.

With a background that started in beauty therapy, Noella achieved unprecedented growth for Elemis year on year as managing director of the UK since her appointment in 2014.

In her new role, Noella will continue to oversee and manage the UK business, while supporting and driving the US business, including a nationwide specialty retail rollout with ULTA Beauty, led from the NYC headquarters.

“My dedication to developing, mentoring and boosting leadership is unwavering. With the team, I’m committed to tripling the business in the next three years,” says Noella. “We are taking Elemis straight to the top. I’m going to take my 30+ years of experience in the beauty space and use laser focus to execute on every single point in our strategic plan. In the US, we are seeing triple-digit growth setting the tone for our launch with ULTA Beauty. We’re really poised for great things.”

Today, Elemis operates in over 90 markets and the heartbeat at the centre of the brand comes from Noella and her fellow co-founders, Séan Harrington and Oriele Frank: Noella’s passion for development, Séan’s quest for business success and Oriele’s pioneering creativity.

“Together as a management team, a brand and a family, we have incredible momentum, success and opportunity; we are leveraging all of this to claim our place as a global leader in skincare,” comments Séan. “We are all excited to see Noella continue to support the Elemis world and bring to the US the same tenacity, energy and bold leadership that she has given to the company for nearly three decades.”
