GloProfessional, a leading professional mineral makeup and skincare company, has appointed Jerald Wenker CEO. Wenker will be responsible for all aspects of the GloProfessional business. “I am very excited to be joining the Glo team,” says Wenker. “Glo occupies a unique space in the global market with platforms in both cosmetics and skin care—Glo minerals providing skin nourishing mineral makeup that covers, corrects and protects and GloTherapeutics, personalized cosmeceutical skincare for clinical transformation.”
Most recently, Wenker was president and chief operating officer at Dermalogica, a prominent professional skincare company operating in 62 markets around the world. At Dermalogica, Wenker led the sales and marketing process in executing the June 2015 sale of the company to Unilever. During his time at Dermalogica, Wenker launched their global e-commerce platform, introduced Dermalogica to specialty retail channels, most notably Ulta Beauty, and increased the brand’s orientation to a more consumer-centric strategy, globally building upon the brand’s professional skin therapist legacy. “Jerry is a broad-based senior executive with more than 25 years of experience and a demonstrated record of achievement in building and growing companies from the pharmaceutical industry to the cosmeceutical sector, and we are looking forward to his contributions at Glo”, says Mo Stout, Managing Director of Swander Pace Capital. SPC acquired Glo in 2013.
