Mary Dillon

CEO, Ulta Beauty

I’m thrilled to help Dress for Success empower women to create their own path toward a future of beautiful possibilities.

The possibilities are beautiful with Mary Dillon as CEO of Ulta Beauty. The Chicago native has 35 years of experience leading consumer-driven brands in a diverse range of industries, with the common thread being her passion for leveraging customer insights and leading through the lens of culture to build brand engagement and drive results.

Since she began leading Ulta Beauty in 2013, Mary and her team have doubled the company’s revenues and vaulted Ulta Beauty to the Fortune 500. Mary leads an associate base that is 92% women, and, under her leadership, the Board of Directors has become one of the most gender diverse of any large public company in the nation. Mary believes strongly in creating common purpose, removing barriers to inclusion and driving associate engagement through valuing the perspectives of her diverse team. Mary also established the Ulta Beauty Charitable Foundation in 2016, which has donated $20+ million to nonprofits supporting women and families.
