This year, ISG has organised a series of conferences on campus that takes our ISG students on a tour all around the world! Experts in their respective field of work eg. journalists have been invited to showcase specialties and unique features eg. culture, economy, business opportunities etc. characteristic to each country.
In a recent conference, our focus turned to China as we looked at the current consumer behavior and its impact on the overall global economic growth. We were extremely pleased to welcome our ISG alumnus from Class of 1995, Stéphane Rinderknech, General Director of L’Oréal China, that participated in this conference as our honored guest and speaker.
Stéphane Rinderknech joined L’Oréal in 2001 as the Regional Director of Lancôme (South America) and then took on more responsibilities as a Division Director of Biotherm and Helena Rubinstein (Latin America). Soon after, he was appointed as the General Director of Biotherm in Japan before being promoted to General Deputy Director of Lancôme Japan and yet again General Director of the Luxury Division of L’Oréal in Korea. In June 2011, he was nominated as the Vice President of the Luxury Division of L’Oréal China that became a leader in the Chinese market of luxury cosmetics.
