During his tenure at Arcade, Lennox has implemented a “One Company” culture to streamline decision making and strengthen regional leadership, positioning the organization to swiftly and effectively respond at the local level while delivering high performance. Besides building a cohesive global organization, Mr. Lennox oversaw the implementation of the 2020 strategy which called for the company to expand sales into the high growth travel retail markets and beauty to-go categories. Additionally, Lennox launched Arcade Beauty’s digital sampling platform, Abeo, which offers brand partners the opportunity to sample targeted consumers directly at home through social media. Abeo offers a 360-degree automated customizable sampling solution from production, campaign design & execution, to distribution & reporting. This, coupled with the company’s strategic partnership with Vengo to offer an interactive digital sampling kiosk has strengthened Arcade Beauty’s overall portfolio with diversification into digital and data-driven product sampling.
