Desiree Rogers Appoints New Fashion Fair Pres

As CEO, Desiree Rogers has had to get creative to save the struggling Johnson Publishing giant. And to her credit, she's been making changes at a steady clip.

Shortly before taking on JP Morgan Chase as a minority partner (after being a family-owned business for 70 years), Rogers nabbed Mitzi Miller as Jet's new editor-in-chief. Before that Advertising Age wrote a glowing piece on Johnson's steady rebounding.

Now here's the latest: This week Johnson appointed Clarisa Wilson as president of Fashion Fair Cosmetics. For those unfamiliar, FFC is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Johnson Publishing.

Said Rogers in a statement

We are elated to have Clarisa Wilson at the helm of Fashion Fair Cosmetics. Her remarkable track record at Carol's Daughter and L'Oreal USA is a clear indication of exciting things to come for our brand. I look forward to developing a collaborative partnership with such an industry authority and visionary.

Looks like Rogers is playing for keeps.
