Erick founded and led the growth of Functionalab Group with Francis Maheu from its inception in 2009. With his numerous achievements and unique experience in brand marketing, international distribution of consumer goods, and business development over the past 20 years, Erick has become a real trendsetter in the cosmetics and nutrition industries. Directly responsible for strategic contracts with LVMH, Estée Lauder and Interbrew to name but a few, Erick provides global expertise in development of innovative products, brand building, international distribution of consumer goods and the marketing approaches used to commercialize them.

Francis founded the Functionalab Group with Erick Geoffrion in 2009 and led it through exponential growth in the beauty market via both acquisitions and organic growth. Before founding Functionalab in 2009, Francis enjoyed a successful career as an investment banker, specializing on cross-border strategic advisory, M&A transactions and funding of entrepreneurial ventures. He was recently a Managing Director at Lazard Frères and COO of the Canadian business and also worked in New York at Credit Suisse First Boston and Lehman Brothers. Francis has also been involved in a variety of business ventures as a principal. Francis has a law degree and obtained his MBA with Distinction from INSEAD.

Roger founded Jouviance with Nicole Sénécal in 2003, where he leveraged both his chemist background and his sales and marketing leadership. Roger began his career as a bench chemist (B.Sc. in chemistry) with Smith, Kline and French, moved on to Ciba Geigy (now Novartis) in production and quality control and later as Director of Strategic Planning. He joined Schering-Plough as Director of Marketing and after 11 years left to join Pfizer Canada as Director of Marketing and later Director of Sales. After 14 years at Pfizer, he took early retirement in 2004, but continued as a consultant for Pfizer in Japan for several years.

Marilyne founded Dermapure in 2009 after seeing the significant opportunity in the non-surgical aesthetic medicine market. In a short period of time, she led the growth of Dermapure from a one-clinic operation to a growing network of aesthetic medicine clinics with a leadership position and a unique positioning. Prior to founding Dermapure, Marilyne cumulated several years of capital equipment sales, including with the largest distributor of aesthetic equipment and lasers in Canada where she trained physicians on the latest and most sophisticated rejuvenation technologies.
