As Chairman and CEO of the world’s leading beauty company, with its 34 iconic brands and 89,000 employees in 140 countries, L’Oréal’s Jean-Paul Agon is a giant in global business.
He’s also one of its great forward thinkers, coupling his drive for digital transformation and technology innovation with a commitment to ethics, social responsibility, and sustainability. Agon talks with David Rubenstein—co-founder of the Carlyle Group and one of America’s leading philanthropists—about his strategy of universalization (globalization without uniformization), about running an international corporate giant with the spirit of a start-up, and why in his own words, “The future looks beautiful.”
