Jo Malone Resigns from The Company

WWD article announced that Jo Malone and her husband will resign from the company. In her letter of resignation, Jo Malone states that “After much soul-searching, I believe that this is a good time to make this decision as the brand is in a secure position and I have many other dreams and passions I would like to fulfill. Every moment of building this special business – from the first day we opened our doors through today and all the wonderful moments in between – has been a magnificent journey. I want to thank everyone who has helped and encouraged us, and I remain particularly grateful to (Lauder chairman) Leonard and (senior corporate vice president) Evelyn Lauder for their mentorship and friendship.”

Jo Malone company became a part of the Estée Lauder group in 1999. The resignation does not seem to be connected with the acquisition, however. Thanks to Cedric for the news.

  • marchlion: “After much soul-searching, I believe I can unload this venture for the maximum amount of personal financial gain to myself, so my husband and I can take some magnificent journeys, including possibly a safari with Abercrombie & Kent. I remain particularly grateful to those of you who buy my juice even though the only one that lasts longer than eight minutes is Pomegranate Noir, which is, of course, the one March really hates.” — Jo.
