INTERVIEW: Keeping it in the family

The great-great granddaughter of company founder Louis Gattefossé, talks about the unique challenges of running a family firm and its wider objectives

Ségolène Moyrand-Gros is president of Gattefossé, a provider of personal care ingredients and pharmaceutical excipients based in Saint-Priest near Lyon in south-east France. Ségolène, 41, who is the great-great granddaughter of company founder Louis Gattefossé, talks to editor Tim Probert about the unique challenges of running a family firm and its wider objectives

TIM PROBERT (TP): You took over as president of Gattefossé last year. How have you found it so far?

SÉGOLÈNE MOYRAND-GROS (SMG): It is very different from what I used to do in the past. Different in a way that it is not operational. It is a position where you have to have a bird’s-eye view on pretty much everything.
