Superior understanding of global skincare

Dr. Sylvie Legenne has a superior understanding of the global skin care product category, encompassing consumer products, professional products as well as prescription products.  As a PharmD, she has excellent command of new formulation technologies, emerging ingredients and drug pharmacologies, as well as a profound understanding of the complex physiology of the skin.  She uniquely possesses incredible business knowledge in this marketplace, fostered by her training and completion of an MBA, but more importantly by her extensive experience in leadership roles for global healthcare megabrands.  In my opinion, there is no one in the skin care space with more wisdom or a greater drive for outstanding business success than Sylvie.  If I could select any one person to consult for a skin care brand that I was launching or managing, it would be Dr. Sylvie Legenne.  Please feel free to contact me personally as a reference for Dr. Legenne.

Passion and expertise

With Sylvie we are sharing the same passion about cosmetics and skin. Working with Sylvie has always been insightful, invigorating and outside the box thinking – every time sharp & to the critical point. For almost a decade while servicing her, during her Johnson & Johnson Consumer Inc. time, we engaged on two strategic imperatives: How scientific rationales can support a brand when reaching professionals and how to engage a consumer audience with meaningful and proven messaging. Now we are partnering on a great project WOCO – a new series of exclusive interviews with leading influencing women, driven by the same passion and expertise around advancing evidence-based skincare.

Build and maintain long-term relationships

It has been difficult for our organization to build and maintain long-term relationships with key physician groups and category experts due to budget fluctuations and personnel changes. SkinLinkConsulting now gives us the opportunity to partner with engaged thought leaders to gain valuable expert perspective, refine strategies and deliver innovative solutions to key business challenges without having to build and maintain a costly infrastructure. Sylvie has created a broad reaching network of leading physicians who meet regularly to discuss breakthrough research, important consumer trends and discuss important confidential topics that my organization believes are important to driving important business decisions.

Professional

When I first met Sylvie I was impressed by her professionalism and level of knowledge in skin care. Getting to know her better I realized she is self-confident yet humble, very respectful to her coworkers and open to new ideas. Sylvie works hard and works smart.  I think she loves a good challenge and thrives on figuring out the best way to deal with any situation. I would trust her with any skin-related consulting required.
