After almost 20 years within the Estée Lauder Companies, Jean-Christophe Jourde has joined Swedish cosmetics brand L:A Bruket as Global CEO. He takes over from Stanislas Le Bert, who was appointed to this position 10 months ago after having held the roles of Managing Director and Deputy Managing Director.

Jean-Christophe Jourde takes the helm of L:A Bruket after having held various senior positions within the Estée Lauder Companies, bringing with him more than 30 years of experience in the beauty industry.

Founded in 2008 by Mats Johansson and Monica Kylén in Varberg, a spa resort located south of Gothenburg, on the West coast of Sweden, L:A Bruket offers natural and organic skincare inspired from the Swedish spa heritage, the seaweed harvest and the coastal way of life.

L:A Bruket was acquired in 2019 by Experienced Capital, a growth capital fund that invests in high-potential brands across all consumer sectors (beauty & wellness, leisure, sports, food & beverage, travel, fashion & accessories, mobility, petcare, child/baby, home/homecare and consumer healthcare) in France and Europe.
