Coty Beauty unveils new Stetson Caliber for men

BY Antoinette Alexander

NEW YORK — Coty Beauty has introduced its new Stetson Caliber fragrance for men, which celebrates the integrity and inner strength of today's young, hardworking American man.

Available at drug stores and mass retailers nationwide, the new fragrance opens with sparkling lime and black pepper. Earthy oakmoss adds depth of character, but the true star is the fresh and woody red sequoia note. Found only in America, the Red Sequoia tree gives the fragrance a strong, sexy masculine finish.

According to the TNS Online Omnibus Survey, commissioned by Coty Beauty Fragrances in July 2014:

•    90% of men and 88% of women think it's important for men to behave chivalrously toward women;
•    Men claim to be more chivalrous than women perceive them to be:  6-out-of-10 men in the United States consider themselves chivalrous, but only 4-out-of-10 women agree;
•    More than half of men claim they give others their undivided attention, but less than 1-in-10 women actually say this is true; and
•    The most chivalrous states are Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee and Kentucky. By contrast, the least chivalrous are the New England states of Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

Supervalu confirms second payment systems breach

BY Vivian Gomez

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Just a little more than a month after Supervalu announced a data breach, the company has confirmed a second malware attack on its payment systems.
 
On Aug. 14, Supervalu announced that it had experienced a criminal intrusion into the portion of its computer network that processes payment card transactions at some of its retail food stores, including some of its associated standalone liquor stores, but not including its Save-A-Lot stores.
 
The company believes that the second incident occurred anywhere between late August and early September 2014. Different malware from the one installed in the first incident was discovered in the payment systems at some of its Shop ’n Save, Shoppers Food and Pharmacy and Cub Foods owned and franchised stores, including some of its associated standalone liquor stores.
 
The company believes this was a separate intrusion from the one announced Aug. 14. The company said that it took immediate steps to secure the affected part of its network, and believes it has eradicated the malware. An investigation of this recently discovered incident is underway.
 
Supervalu also touted its enhanced protective technology, saying that it significantly limited the recently discovered malware’s ability to capture data from payment cards where the malware was installed. Specifically, although the investigation is ongoing, Supervalu believes that this latest breach did not succeed in capturing data from any payment cards used at any stores other than at some checkout lanes at four Cub Foods franchised stores, adding that “even as to the checkout lanes at these four stores, the company has made no determination that any cardholder data was in fact stolen by the intruder.”
 
The company does not believe that the malware affected any of its Farm Fresh or Hornbacher’s stores, any of its owned or licensed Save-A-Lot stores or any of the independent grocery stores supplied by the company through its independent business network — other than the affected Cub Foods franchised stores.
 
The company has notified federal law enforcement authorities of this latest incident and is cooperating in their efforts to investigate the matter and identify those responsible.
 
“We care greatly about our customers, and the safety of their personal information will continue to be a top priority for us,” said president and CEO Sam Duncan. “We’ve taken measures to install enhanced protective technology that we believe significantly limited the ability of this malware to capture payment card data and we will continue to make these investments going forward.”

H.D. Smith names new VP generic pharmaceuticals

BY Michael Johnsen

SPRINGFIELD TOWNSHIP, Ill. — Wholesaler H.D. Smith last week promoted Dmitrey Kuznetsov to VP generic pharmaceuticals. 
 
In this new role, Kuznetsov will be responsible for the generic pharmaceutical category to improve profits by driving a consistent and comprehensive strategy. Adding to his current responsibilities with generic sourcing, he will assume responsibility for the commercialization of generics. This will allow Kuznetsov to continue to deliver incremental value and still lead H. D. Smith’s generic sourcing activities. In his expanded role, Kuznetsov will help develop programs and pricing initiatives that will optimize generics for H. D. Smith’s customers.
 
Kuznetsov joined H. D. Smith in 2012 as VP generic pharmaceuticals sourcing, and was responsible for the development, implementation and management of the generic pharmaceuticals sourcing strategy. He led the team in establishing strategic relationships with trading partners that have resulted in H. D. Smith’s competitive generics portfolio. In addition, his team was able to negotiate improved terms and conditions with trading partners that have allowed H. D. Smith to be contemporary with contracts.
