“I’ve been a fan of Colorescience from its inception! My mother, a dermatologist, carried it in her office from launch, and I’ve always loved the ease of use of the Sunforgettable® brush, not only for me, but for my kids. I love the direction of the brand under the leadership of CEO Mary Fisher and team, and am so excited about the future of Colorescience -- the possibilities are limitless!” says David Olsen.
Also joining the Colorescience Board is Ty Stiklorius, the Founder and CEO of Friends At Work, an entertainment and social-impact company that partners with leading creators, influencers and brands to elevate important voices and help their vision thrive. Founded in 2015, LA-based Friends At Work supports the careers of artists including John Legend, Lindsey Stirling, XAmbassadors and Fletcher, among others. Friends At Work also advises organizations and individuals on social-impact strategy, business development, and creative storytelling and production. Ty’s work with John Legend began in 2006 with JL Ventures, where she created and developed artist-focused strategies for content innovation and social impact. Ty is a principal in John Legend’s production company Get Lifted Film Co., which has served as Executive Producer on the Oscar-winning film La La Land and WGN’s hit series Underground. Ty and Legend also started the #FREEAMERICA campaign to influence the national conversation regarding mass incarceration and prosecutor integrity. In 2017, Fast Company included Ty on their Most Creative People list and Billboard named her as one of the most powerful women in music. Ty earned an MBA from The Wharton School and a BA from The University of Pennsylvania. She serves on various private company and non-profit Boards.
“I first discovered Colorescience through their innovative Sunforgettable® mineral products and then had the pleasure of getting to know their brilliant women-led science-based team. I admire their mission to create healthy skincare and cosmetics that nourish, beautify and offer total protection from the sun, pollution, free radicals and other harsh environmental factors. Protecting our skin is vital to health and wellness, and no product has more advanced science behind their total protection. I trust my skin and the skin of my children to Colorescience. I look forward to contributing to Colorescience’s impressive growth and to working alongside this talented and groundbreaking team,” says Ty Stiklorius.
