Shiseido's long-standing GM May Law to step down

May Law will be leaving her role as chief communication officer from Shiseido Hong Kong in October to pursue new opportunities.

Law recently took up the new role in July to spearhead corporate communication initiatives.

Gloria Ho, brand general manager will be joining as Law’s successor. Ho has over 18 years of experience in beauty retail, and worked with brands such as SK-II, Max Factor, Biotherm, Kerastase and L’Oreal Professionnel.

She will drive all aspects of the Shiseido business, branding and customer experience, including overseeing the brand’s core, channel 2 and R.com strategies as well as managing strategic relationships including media.

"I am confident she will take the mature business and solid teams – both poised for further success thanks to May’s tenure - to even greater heights," said Morgan Tan, president of Shiseido Hong Kong.

May Law joined Dah Chong Hong as divisional manager for professional hair care in 1995 and continued to look after the business until 2011.

During that time, she held several other roles including division manager for self-selection between 1997-1998 and senior marketing manager of Shiseido between 1998-2007.

In 2008, she was promoted to assistant general manager of Shiseido and again in 2012, to general manager. Between 2008-2014, Law concurrently held title of senior manager of corporate marketing.
