Bernd Beetz, former chief executive officer of Coty Inc., accepted the Fragrance Foundation’s Circle of Champions award last week with grace and more than a little good humor.
He smiled through all the jokes about his German accent and ended the evening by saluting the staff he built over the decade he spent turning Coty into a global fragrance powerhouse. He said that despite his accent, his organization always performed just as he’d hoped, “despite not being able to understand me.”
