Commenting on his appointment, Burton said: "It's terrific to be joining such an iconic brand at such an exciting moment in the company's transformation.  

“The power of the Avon model is tremendous: six million Avon Representatives and their customers … that's six million micro-influencers and online beauty entrepreneurs.  

“Our role is to deliver the tools and service they need to build and grow their businesses online."

Burton will report to Avon’s Chief Digital and Information Technology Officer Benedetto Conversano.

"I'm delighted that Nick is joining the team," Conversano said. "He's a strong strategic leader and will support Avon's growth by building on our existing talent and infrastructure and taking our digital sales proposition into the future.
