Lorenzo Delpani Statement on Settlement of
Lawsuit in 2015
Lorenzo Delpani Statement on Settlement of Lawsuit in 2015. In December 2014, I was named personally in a lawsuit by a former Revlon employee that included a number of allegations that were sensationalized by the media.Almost immediately, the case was amicably resolved by Revlon and the former employee, and I obviously continued as Revlon’s CEO and Board Member thereafter.While I cannot comment specifically on the case, the allegations were unfortunately widely reported despite Revlon’s denial of any wrongdoing at the time and a statement of support from its Chairman, Mr. Ronald O. Perelman, that said: “ I know Lorenzo as an executive and as a person. (…) I personally know his mind and his character. He is among the least bigoted or biased human I have ever known. He has my full support.”Many current and former employees and colleagues supported me throughout the difficult situation and have provided recommendations since that time which can be found on my Linkedin page.In 25+ years of leadership in global consumers businesses, managing several thousands employees across the world and across different cultures, no one else ever filed a lawsuit against me personally.Notably, in 2015, after the lawsuit was resolved, WWD recognized me as Marketer of the Year and Adweek also recognized me as one of the “Most influential leaders in marketing, media and tech.”
