Pleasing, founded by musician Harry Styles, has tapped Shaun Kearney, former chief design and merchandising officer at Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop as its first CEO.

Kearney joins the Pleasing team alongside co-creative directors Harry Lambert and Molly Hawkins and Sophie Kerr-Dineen, head of marketing. The official appointment will take place on July 17.

”His [Kearney] exceptional vision and extensive experience will be invaluable as we enter the next chapter of Pleasing,” said Styles in a statement.

In April, the two-year-old brand released its latest nail polish and apparel collection, Pollinators. The products were a nod to the local wildlife in Styles’ North London neighbourhood.
