Following the announcement that British Beauty Council's Co-Founder and Chair Jane Boardman will step down after four years in the role, the company has announced Meribeth Parker as its new Chair.

Effective from June 2022, Parker will run the board, manage governance and give leadership to the CEO and the management team in her role as Chair.

Parker brings "extensive" board experience, with previous non-executive directorship roles at Jimmy Choo plc, Bally and Belstaff. Parker is currently Head of Business Transformation at News UK.

Meribeth Parker, newly appointed Chair at the British Beauty Council, said: "It’s an honour to take on this role. Jane and the team at the council, alongside the board, have achieved so much in the last four years. Thanks to them, the beauty industry’s importance to the economy is now acknowledged and we can move into a new chapter with our heads held high. I look forward to leading the board as we continue to drive change.”

Jane Boardman, Chair of the British Beauty Council, said: “I am delighted to be handing over the baton to Meribeth who will make a terrific chair. It has been an honour to help found this wonderful organisation and lead it as chair for the past four years.When we formed the Council back in 2018 we had big dreams and set ourselves challenging goals, and I’m proud to say we have achieved way more than even our early optimism allowed for. I know that under Meribeth’s guidance the British Beauty Council will continue to go from strength to strength”
