Nadine’s role also includes working with media companies to develop opportunities and co create ideas that can drive the future for the Beauty leader across their communications and media platforms and resonate with consumers in engaging and meaningful ways.

Prior to joining L’Oreal in 2014, Nadine was Vice President of Global Integrated Media Communications at Colgate Palmolive where she was responsible for driving best in class digitized media and integrated marketing ideas and best practices.

By thinking differently and being able to reframe problems, the future we create is only as limited as we allow it to be.
