Biologique Recherche has appointed Jean-Guillaume Trottier as group CEO, marking the start of a new chapter for the professional French spa and skincare brand.

Founded in the late 1970s, the brand has been helmed by co-CEOs and co-owners Pierre-Louis Delapalme and Rupert Schmid for more than 15 years. During this time, the duo have helped multiply the company’s revenue by more than 20-fold.

“We have decided that it is now time to hand over the leadership to write the next chapter of our success story,” they said.

“We’re exceedingly happy and proud that Jean-Guillaume, one of the most talented leaders in the beauty industry with an impressive track record, is going to drive the future of Biologique Recherche and enable the company to reach new heights.

“He boasts a rare combination of strong leadership skills, deep brand understanding, a passion for innovation and extensive international expertise.”

Trottier joined the company this month and will take over the office of CEO at the beginning of May 2024 following a transition period.

Delapalme and Schmid will remain closely involved as co-owners and Executive Board members while supporting Trottier in his new endeavours.

“I will build on the company’s unique DNA and heritage while continuing to nurture a culture of high performance in our teams and products,” said Trottier.

“I look forward to working with Pierre-Louis and Rupert as well as our researchers, therapists and employees to deliver the highest level of customised beauty experiences and consequently grow the business.”

Jean-Guillaume Trottier
Trottier has spent his entire career in the beauty industry, having worked for three years in L’Oreal’s Luxury Division, followed by 19 years at the Estée Lauder Companies (ELC): MAC Cosmetics as vice president and general manager EMEA and UK, before leading Jo Malone London for more than a decade.

He most recently occupied the position of global brand president Jo Malone London and Darphin Paris at ELC. He has a degree in Civil Architecture (DPLG) and an MBA (International Luxury Brand Management) from ESSEC business school.
