I see women in the heart of our communities, who are helping make the world a better place each day.

Sue Y. Nabi is the Chief Executive Officer of Coty Inc and has been in the role since September 2020. She is a true veteran in the beauty space, with roughly 30 years of experience across key strategic focus areas for Coty. This includes a track record of success across the mass and luxury channels, as well as successful brand building across international markets.

Born in Algeria, Nabi has an Advanced Master's degree in Marketing Management from Paris Business School and an engineering degree in Agronomy and Environment. She began her career at L’Oréal in 1993. During this period, she was named Manager of the Year in 2008 by Cosmétique Magazine and won the Prix d’Excellence Marie Claire award 3 years in a row.

In 2014, Nabi left L’Oréal to co-found a new brand and product range with Nicolas Vu. After three years of development, Orveda was launched in 2017.
