Robertet has announced that Jérôme Bruhat will take up the position of deputy chief executive officer as of February 1, 2022.
Bruhat’s arrival in the general management team is the result of a selection process carried out in 2021. It comes in the framework of the dissociation of the functions of its chairman and chief executive officer, Philippe Maubert, which will take effect following the general assembly in June 2022. At that time, Maubert will assume the role of non-executive chairman of the group and Bruhat that of chief executive officer.
Bruhat joins Robertet after more than three decades with L’Oréal. He has been president of L’Oréal in Japan since 2015. There, he developed the business of the various divisions, the innovation and industry activities, and made an acquisition of a local company. He began his career in 1991 in the public products division in France as product manager, before moving on to general management positions in Belgium, Germany, Japan and the United States. Among other positions, he was global brand director of Maybelline New York and president of L’Oréal Germany.
