BERLIN-Oct. 12, 2021 – SoPost, a state-of-the-art online product sampling platform, today announced the appointment of Magali Kirsch, an international marketing expert with over 15 years of experience in the beauty industry to the role of Director of Partnerships, DACH to conquer the European online sampling market.

We’re excited to grow with her.”
Magali started her career as a Project Manager in international marketing with L’Oréal in Paris, France, where she worked within its Luxury Division for renowned skincare brands and designer fragrances. Empowered by this experience, she then went on to co-found her own company, “We Love Beauty” (formerly known as Beautistas), an interactive online beauty community.
