Meet One Of The Young Leaders Guiding L’Oréal Through This Tech Age

We are in an age where technology is everything. The single most disruptive force reshaping today’s industries is disruption itself. Change is the only thing permanent — changing customer behaviors and expectations, technology, digitalization, and a long list of disrupters fundamentally changing the way our business operates, the alliances we forge and the speed at which we grow.

At L’Oréal technology is at the heart of our inventions transforming the future of Beauty. Behind all of our innovations and technological advances are a great bunch of people working together to make sure we stay ahead of the game. Marc, Head of Digital IT at L’Oréal Canada, is one of these incredible people!

How did your L’Oréal story start?

Give me an outlandish fact about yourself

(So we did as Marc said and googled it… turns out he has a serious fear of insects… luckily he doesn’t come across any at work :D

What inspired you to apply to L’Oréal?

Has there been anything that surprised you about working at L’Oréal?

But here you are — the resources of an industry leader and the agility and autonomy of a lean start-up where those around you inspires you to become the best you can be because they are in tune with their passion.

I firmly believe that you don’t need to start the next Facebook to exhibit the qualities of having the entrepreneurial spirit. It’s something you exhibit every day in how you approach your life and career.

At L’Oréal you never get bored that’s for sure, because we are continually questioning why things are done the way they are and aren’t afraid to go against the majority to make changes. No day is ever the same at L’Oréal, something we definitely pride ourselves in!

What is the key of leadership for you?

What is the hardest part of being a young leader?

I believe that in today’s digitally disrupted world, the age of a leader should matter less.

Youth is a strength, it very often brings change, and change is good! The hard part is that people have the perception that young leaders lack experience; communicating well to show that you understand the context and staying open-minded are ways to counter this.

Can you tell us about a bit about your team?

What about a project you’ve accomplished at L’Oréal that you’re most proud of…

Do you have any words of advice for aspiring L’Oréal future talent?

Be yourself and take smart risks!
