Denton-based Sally Beauty Holdings has its first female chief executive officer.
Denise Paulonis, 49, a former chief financial officer at Irving-based Michaels, comes to Sally Beauty from Sprouts Farmers Market, where she had been CFO since February 2020.
She will succeed Chris Brickman, 56, on Oct. 1. Brickman has been CEO since 2012 and will remain on a consulting basis through March “to support an orderly transition,” the company said.
Paulonis has been on Sally Beauty’s board since 2018. She was at arts and crafts retailer Michaels from 2014 to 2020 and held several executive positions from 2000 to 2014
