L’Oréal : Nicolas Hieronimus takes over as CEO

This Saturday, May 1st, Nicolas Hieronimus, who is passionate about sports and rock ‘n’ roll, becomes the new managing director of the cosmetics empire, L’Oréal. After spending 34 years of his life with the group, he is moving up the ranks of the empire, having previously been the group’s deputy director in charge of four divisions.


Nicolas Hieronimus is a pure “L’Oréalien”. Having just graduated from the ESSEC Business School, he joined L’Oréal at the age of 23. Within the group, he began by selling shampoos at Garnier. But in 1996, he made his mark with the launch of one of the company’s emblematic products: “Fructis shampoo” with its bright green packaging libido-de.com.


As an international company, L’Oréal gave Mr. Hieronimus the opportunity to experience life abroad. He started by experimenting in the United Kingdom and then in Mexico in positions of high responsibility.
