by MODERN Staff | June 20, 2019

Moroccanoil, a global leader in argan oil-infused beauty, announces the appointment of Jay Elarar as Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately.

 Elarar brings intimate understanding and commitment to the brand, having begun his career with Moroccanoil as Director of Sales in 2012, when the company was only five years old.
