(October 6, 2021, San Juan) – L'Oréal Caribe, leading beauty company, fosters a culture of innovation through its rapid pace of digitization and innovation in beauty, talent acquisition, and upskilling initiatives to build a digital first company, which lives by the company’s goal of "Digital for All".
Dave Hughes, General Manager for L’Oréal Caribe said: “At L'Oréal Caribe we believe in the culture of learning, in the diversification of the expertise of our employees, in developing their strengths and helping them acquire skills, in their internal career development and offer a range of programs to realize these values. Thanks to a clear focus on upskilling our teams on digital capabilities, we at L’Oréal have a talent community that began as marketers and have now specialized as digital experts”.
This year, L'Oréal Caribe added the Digital Innovation capacity to its corporate functions by developing and promoting its internal talent with the appointment of Carolina Bermúdez as Senior Manager of Corporate Marketing and Digital Innovation for Puerto Rico and the Caribbean region, reporting to Dave Hughes, General Manager of L'Oréal Caribe from the offices in Guaynabo.

The need to innovate within this space is at an all-time high with the rapid pace of digital transformation that we see in the world. My vision is that this innovation should benefit from our internal processes to the way we connect with our consumers with the goal of offering an optimized experience to our consumers and helping them achieve their infinite beauty aspirations”.
