Motte succeeds Chris de LaPuente, who took over in June following the departure of Martin Brok. Brok left after just two years at the LVMH-owned beauty retailer’s helm. Prior to his post at LVMH Fashion Group, Motte served as president of Sephora Europe and Middle East.

Motte’s appointment comes as Sephora re-enters the UK market. Sephora acquired British beauty e-tailer Feelunique in July 2021, and started transitioning its site to Sephora UK in October. The retailer is set to open a London store in March 2023.
