NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 8, 2020--

Milk Makeup, the award-winning makeup and skincare division of Milk Group, has named Tim Coolican, the former President of L’Oreal Paris USA, as its new CEO.

“There is a unique recipe behind the brand’s explosive entry into the market that also positions it for long term sustained growth: a distinctive DNA stemming from Milk Studios’ 25-year heritage as a cultural innovator and content creator, an unwavering commitment to diversity, inclusion, self-expression and social responsibility and a proven ability to bring disruptive innovation that is clean, vegan, cruelty-free and easy to use. I look forward to sharing Milk Makeup’s important core values and innovative products with the next generation of beauty enthusiasts.”

Coolican has robust experience in team leadership, modern marketing and international expansion that will help Milk Makeup to amplify its message in the U.S. and abroad.
