Last week the new President met with 12 business leaders, among them the CEO of Johnson & Johnson. Cosmetics Design reached out to Gorsky to find out how he’ll be representing the cosmetics and personal care industry in these meetings going forward.

J&J specializes in manufacturing medical devices and pharmaceutical products. But the company also does a robust business in CPG, which include brands like Aveeno, Clean & Clean, and Neutrogena. Alex Gorsky has been the company’s CEO since 2012.

Besides Gorsky, the only person in the room with the President last Monday with a direct link to the beauty industry was Andrew Liveris, chairman, president, and CEO of Dow Chemical. Dow makes and supplies this industry and many others with an array of ingredients.

The other CEOs at the meeting were: Michael Dell of Dell Technologies, Jeff Fettig of Whirlpool, Mark Fields of Ford, Marillyn Hewson of Lockheed Martin, Klaus Kleinfeld of Arconic, Mario Longhi of US Steel, Elon Musk of SpaceX and Tesla, Kevin Plank of Under Armour, Mark Sutton of International Paper, and Wendell Weeks of Corning.

This same group of business people is set to meet again next month and subsequently on a quarterly basis.

In the room

“I was very pleased to have the opportunity to discuss the critical issues of job creation, corporate tax and regulatory reform directly with President Trump this morning,” ​Gorsky said in a prepared statement.

“The meeting was productive, and I’m looking forward to working with him and the new congress to support the enactment of polices that will increase America’s growth and competitiveness in these areas,” ​he added.

In response to Cosmetics Design’s request for more detailed information about the meeting and how he plans to represent or advocate for the personal care and cosmetics industry, the company responded that “unfortunately Mr. Gorsky is not available for an interview at this point.”
