Emily Weiss, the Founder of Glossier, has announced that she will no longer hold the title of CEO of her own company.

Weiss took to Instagram and the brand’s website to reveal who has taken her place, Kyle Leahy, who previously serves as Glossier’s CCO since 2021. “Today I am celebrating my friend and colleague Kyle Leahy, who I’ve decided to make Glossier’s next CEO,” Weiss wrote in her Instagram caption. “To be clear, I’m not going anywhere! Just able to focus more of my time as Founder (and now, Executive Chairwoman) on the areas that I love: product, creative, brand… anything that makes yours and my heartbeat just a little bit faster. After I settle into life welcoming this new little heart into existence, soon,” she added.

In her blog post, Weiss shared the difference between being a Founder and CEO. “A Founder is a forever identity, one that starts with a kernel of an idea and never ends. I will always be Glossier’s Founder,” she said. “But a CEO is the champion that a company looks to, to lead it into tomorrow.” With her role as Founder and Executive Chairwoman, Weiss will be able to focus more on “supporting [the brand's] brilliant leaders of creative, brand, product, and retail.”

Head over the Glossier’s website to read the full letter.
