New President Appointed to Vera Wang Group


Last week the Vera Wang Group announced that their decision to make Veronique Gabai-Pinsky President. Since leaving her position as global brand president for Estée Lauder fragrances in 2014, she had remained as an advisor to the company while acting as a consultant to Vera Wang.

Gabai-Pinsky has worked with Vera Wang herself for several years, on projects including Wang’s beauty and skincare line for Kohl’s. “Given how we interact together and our history on many levels, it was just something that could be just great, so I went seriously after her, and it’s been a long courtship,” Wang stated regarding hiring Gabai-Pinskey to help run her company.

Licensing agreements with retailers like Kohl’s are the Vera Wang brand’s main source of income, necessitating leadership from an individual experienced in the industry. Gabai-Pinsky’s work for Estée Lauder allowed her this experience, working with numerous brands to solidify signature scents and more.

As she stated in a Time magazine interview, “I don’t work with trend companies. They only do ‘now,’ and for me ‘now’ is over. I want the future.” As a successful brand of 25 years, Vera Wang has become a staple in bridal fashion and formal wear, bringing a fresh aspect to the bridal industry that has maintained beyond trends.
