Staying in touch with the consumer and understanding her need to feel young is a big part of Johnson & Johnson’s success—even in this tough economy, said Pericles P. Stamatiades, company group chairman of the Johnson & Johnson Beauty Care Global Business Unit, during a recent Newsmaker Forum presented by the Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW).
At the CEW event, which was held in January, Mr. Stamatiades focused on several topics, including how Johnson & Johnson encourages innovation to the effects of the failing economy. Mr. Stamatiades’ advice was simple. “Tough times are good for tough people; keep calm and true to what you’re doing.”
CEW, a non-profit organization based in New York, has more than 4000 members in the beauty, cosmetics and fragrance industries. CEW has associated organizations in France and the UK.
