The Estée Lauder Companies continues to build on its legacy as a family company founded by a woman, for women, by promoting Sara E. Moss to the newly created role of Vice Chairman. Moss is currently Executive Vice President and General Counsel and will continue in her role until a successor is named at a later date.
She will jointly report to William P. Lauder, Executive Chairman, and Fabrizio Freda, President and Chief Executive Officer.
In this role, Moss will focus on advisory and liaison roles with executive management, the Board of Directors and the Lauder family and will work collaboratively with senior leaders across the organization to drive the company’s global programs to develop women as exceptional leaders, as well as women’s focused initiatives.
Before joining ELC, Moss had a distinguished career as a lawyer and leader.
She was one of the first women litigators at a Wall Street law firm, part of the first small group of women federal prosecutors in the Criminal Division of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, and one of the first few women General Counsel in the Fortune 500.
