With a career that spans more than 30 years, Philip Shearer, an avid competitor, thrives on big moments, making big decisions. Utterly comfortable with taking risks, he’s reaped the rewards throughout his career, whether it was betting the farm (and winning) on the launch of Giorgio Armani’s Acqua di Gio while at L’Oréal or being a pioneer in introducing Western beauty brands into the Chinese market. Today, as head of the $1.38 billion Groupe Clarins, Shearer oversees an equally iconoclastic group of brands, including its eponymous skin care powerhouse and Parfums Thierry Mugler.
How was it coming into a company that is so family oriented? You’re one of only two outsiders to have ever headed Clarins.
