L’Oréal is to bring together its Western and Eastern Europe zones into a single Europe Zone, which will be headed by Vianney Derville, currently President of L’Oréal Western Europe Zone.

The move follows the retirement of Alexandre Popoff, President of L’Oréal Eastern Europe Zone. L’Oreal says the change is the last stage in the reorganization of the group’s zone structure.

Derville joined the group in 1992, as a product manager in the Consumer Products Division (CPD) in France for Lascad. He was also General Manager for the CPD Division in Japan and head of the division in the US. He was appointed President of the Western Europe Zone in 2016.
