L’Oréal’s lead marketing executive is heading to Google. After little over three years with the cosmetics maker, Marc Speichert is taking his talents to Mountain View to help the company court new advertising partners. He’ll report to former Procter & Gamble exec, Kirk Perry who joined the search giant last fall.


Last year, Google filed a bizarre patent application for some type of electronic neck tattoo. The filing was by Motorola Mobility, a company the search giant is currently selling to Lenovo. It’s unknown if Google will retain this patent filing after closing its deal with the Chinese computer manufacturer, however if it does move forward with skin related products, Speichert’s experience with cosmetics could prove useful.
