With an Advanced Master’s degree in Marketing Management from ESSEC (Paris Business School) and an engineering degree in Agronomy and Environment, Nabi’s unique business perspective arises in part from this unique combination of creativity and rationality. Nabi began her career at L’Oréal in 1993, where her passion, ambition and talent for bringing brands alive would lead to her becoming the youngest ever CEO in L’Oréal history for L’Oréal Paris. During this period, Nabi perfected her signature recipe for success of strong innovation pipeline, disruptive packaging and finally a choice of diverse muses, both women and men, that people felt close to. Evolving the slogan of L’Oréal Paris to “because we’re worth it” cemented the brand’s inclusivity and after four years it was thriving in double-digit growth. In 2009, Nabi was tasked with revitalising Lancôme. The same recipe for success was applied to make Lancôme the brand of happiness, resulting in three years of up to double-digit growth and a record turnover of €3.2b, with the launch of the most successful fragrance of the last twenty years, ‘La Vie est Belle’, represented by Oscar-winning actress Julia Roberts, and now the second best-selling prestige perfume in the world. In 2014, following a ground-breaking career at L’Oréal, Nabi joined forces with co-founder and friend Nicolas Vu to create a new product range and brand. After three years of meticulous development, Orveda was launched in 2017. Green, clean, vegan and genderless, powered by actives and not by marketing, Orveda is an empowering, new-age skincare range that is based on the science of glow and working with skin, not against it. In 2020, Orveda is sold on Orveda.com and is physically present in the most beautiful points of sale or luxury spas and medi-spas in the UK, France, USA, Switzerland, Mexico, Ge
