NEW YORK: Ilissa Wood has joined beauty product manufacturer Lancome as its new USA director of PR.
She reports to Suzie Davidowitz, the VP of PR.
Wood was previously a PR Manager at the consumer products division of Johnson & Johnson, representing brands such as Band-Aid, K-Y, and Reach floss and toothbrushes. She started her career at MS&L.
Wood said she joined Lancome because she wanted to return to a focus on lifestyle products as opposed to the mix of brands she helmed as J&J.
"I knew it would be the next best move for me," Wood said.
Wood's position was still open at J&J, according to Gail Spradley, who is the
assistant of Wood's former boss, Danielle Devine.
