Biologique Recherche appoints global head of sales to underpin global expansion plans

We decided to strengthen the Sales Team with Arnaud’s appointment
– Rupert Schmid

Arnaud Diaz has been named as Biologique Recherche’s head of global sales, effective immediately.

Diaz’s new role involves managing Biologique Recherche’s business development both in France and worldwide.

Biologique Recherche co-chair Rupert Schmid told Spa Business the appointment will underpin the brand’s global growth aspirations and plans, which rely on strong partnerships with its day spa, medi-spa and medical network.

“During 2020 our network took care of its guests and we came out of 2020 in a strong position. So now, we’re building the foundation for the long term, sustainable growth and success for our beloved company," he said.

“Therefore we decided – with more than 80 active countries – to strengthen the Sales Team with Arnaud’s appointment.

“He will oversee the Export Sales Team and our French Sales Team with the ambition to bring our performance to the next level of customer service and development. We wish him all the best and a warm welcome to our family.”

Prior to the appointment, Diaz worked as international director at Thalgo Group, managing the Thalgo and Ella Baché brands.

He also spent the last 15 years managing the international development of other professional brands such as Sothys and Comfort Zone.

Diaz remarked: “I’m most excited to manage this premium professional brand’s global growth while maintaining its exclusivity.

"Biologique Recherche is dedicated to its worldwide professional partners who understand who we are and want to engage to provide the best possible service.”
