As part of the transformation of Christine Valmy (CV) Inc., the Pine Brook-based provider of skincare treatment and cosmetic products is expanding its leadership team.
In a Jan. 17 press release, the company announced Robert Olich as chief financial officer and that it filled two newly created positions, adding Steve Earl as head of manufacturing & operations and Vicky Nimmolrat as director of human resources & compliance.
Marina Valmy, CV president and the founder’s daughter, commented on the hires, saying the positions are “pivotal for the continued success of this nearly 60-year-old business” and “reflect the organization’s substantive efforts to design an operation primed to gain market share in the cosmetics space.”
Valmy went on, “I have worked at this company in one form or another for my entire life, and I’ve seen it through many transitions. I can honestly say that we are in the midst of its biggest transformation ever.”
“The addition of Robert, Steve and Vicky in these crucial roles represents some of the most exciting aspects of this consequential change, much of which has yet to be made public,” she added. “They are the perfect people to help us steer this ship, and we are thrilled to have them as part of the CV Family during this exciting time. I couldn’t be more optimistic for the future!”
Olich, who brings more than two decades of expertise in financial and corporate control, will be responsible for directing CV’s financial activities across all business lines, reforming cash flow management procedures and leading a growing accounting department. He joins following the retirement of CV’s longtime CFO.
Prior to CV, Olich held positions at companies such as Marino/WARE, Legrand and RAME-HART Inc.
Earl, previously a plant leader for cosmetics manufacturing giants such as L’Oreal, Intercos and Tokiwa Cosmetics, will work to streamline processes and increase efficiencies throughout the products division as well as oversee teams in the laboratory, factory and warehouse.
As director of human resources & compliance, Nimmolrat will play an essential role in developing organizational structure, recruiting and onboarding top-quality candidates, and managing benefits programs, according to the company. Before joining CV, she was director of human resources – Payroll at Rana USA Inc.
Founded in 1965, CV offers beauty education, skincare treatment methods and natural cosmetic products for personal and professional care.
In August, the company announced a new leadership team to oversee all current and future school locations, promoting Vanessa Maia to head of education, a new position focused on streamlining and growing the company’s education division.
CV also brought on Habiba Chaudhry as assistant director of Christine Valmy International School of Esthetics & Cosmetology in New Jersey.
