In her new role, Wang will provide strategic vision and leadership while working to create growth for the Company in the Asia Pacific region and beyond. Wang joined Mary Kay’s Corporate Legal Department in 2002 as Counsel for the Asia Pacific region. Shortly thereafter, she began a multi-year assignment in China. Upon her return to the global corporate headquarters in 2012, she was promoted to the position of Vice President and Associate General Counsel where she was responsible for legal work and compliance in all four regions. In 2019, Wang returned to China for a new assignment and was promoted to the position of Chief Commercial Officer for the Asia Pacific Region in 2020. In this role, she developed and drove the implementation of commercial strategies, and lead the Asia Pacific regional team in support of sales, marketing, business technology and operations, preparing her to take on the challenge of the Region President responsibilities.

“We want to congratulate Wendy as she transitions into her new role as President of Mary Kay Asia Pacific,” said David Holl, Mary Kay Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Wendy is passionate for the Mary Kay independent sales force and is a proven leader within Mary Kay. During her tenure, she has tirelessly built a strong and talented legal team that created a culture of compliance and compassion for China and the entire Asia Pacific Region. We are thrilled to welcome her as a member of the executive committee as we build on our efforts to enrich women’s lives around the globe.”

A graduate of The University of Texas at Austin, Wang earned her law degree as well as an undergraduate degree in Economics. She has received numerous honors and accolades including her recognition in 2017 by D CEO magazine as ‘Outstanding Deputy General Counsel/Associate General’ and the Greater Dallas Asian American Chamber of Commerce ‘Corporate Executive Diversity’ award.

“I am committed to empowering women and their families in the Asia Pacific region,” says Wang. “Supporting Mary Kay’s independent sales force is my greatest honor and always brings me hope, love and confidence in our future. We are a people business with a mission to enrich women’s lives and a vision to empower the Independent Beauty Consultant. My team and I are committed to delivering the very best business opportunity, building upon the values Mary Kay upholds as cornerstones of our corporate culture and mission.”

The promotion of Wang is the latest in Mary Kay Inc.’s decades-long commitment to empowering women to serve in leadership positions around the globe. Mary Kay is a company built by women for women, and that core value is reflected in Mary Kay’s global workforce gender diversity data (as of March 2021):

  • 59% of Directors and above are female
  • 54% of Global Vice Presidents and above are female
