Finding a new board member for Barony Universal.
Founded in 1994, Barony Universal is a leading manufacturer and marketer of branded cosmetics, toiletries, and household products worldwide.
In 2013, Alexis Grabar was appointed CCO to the board of Barony Universal, part of the Arnest Group, the biggest Russian cosmetics group with 57% market share in Russian aerosols production. He was responsible for overviewing the group’s international expansion.
