Jane Jackson : Career Management Coach

Pippa Hallas is the CEO of the iconic skincare empire Ella Baché.

At the time of recording, we are in the middle of the global Coronavirus pandemic and these are challenging times when we need strong leadership and inspiration.  This episode is dedicated to this amazing woman who is successfully leading through change and it's an honour to hear her career journey on YOUR CAREER Podcast.

Pippa Hallas is the embodiment of female empowerment - she’s a mentor, wellness authority, a mother to two young sons, a wife, and author of BOLD MOVES – How to Stand Out, Step Out and  Make Your Next Bold Move.  This book pays tribute to remarkable Australian women including Lorna Jane Clarkson, Tracey Spicer, Layne Beachley, Kym Ellery and, of course, Pippa’s great aunt, Madame Baché.

Ella Baché is a family run business which was launched by her great aunt Madame Baché in Paris in the 1936 and brought to Australia by her grandmother Edith Hallas in the ‘50s and developed under the leadership of her father John in the eras that followed. 

Now, in her capable hands, Pippa is driving the brand into a new era of beauty. Over the past 10 years as CEO, she has focused on the same principles the business was founded on, but adds to its repertoire as a trusted go-to brand in the skincare and cosmetic world. 

Prior to joining the company, Hallas worked at the esteemed advertising agency, McCann Erickson in London. Her love for brand building and marketing [she studied business/marketing at university and did her post-grad in the same field] saw her join the family business in a marketing role, later as GM and then as CEO to take Ella Baché to the next generation. 

Pippa has grown the franchise business to over 155 salons and launched the e-commerce site which has evolved over the last seven years. She says she’d like to continue to support the franchise model and continue to prove that it is a viable business option for young women wanting to become business role models. 

“The fundamentals of what made Ella Baché a success was the person behind the name – she was a scientist/chemist and it was her approach to innovation and doing things differently that saw her become a world leader in beauty,” Pippa says. 

Pippa's prerogative is to educate young women about skin health and not erase the skin that makes them who they are. 

The key at Ella Baché is about making sure women feel confident in their own skin. It’s reflective of Pippa’s role as a working mother and CEO of a company – proving you can manage both aspects in your life and do so confidently. What’s more, she wants women to understand that quick beauty fixes aren’t the answer to skin longevity or loving yourself. 

“My philosophy is to make sure women feel confident in their own skin and that they don’t want to erase it to look like someone else. Beautiful differences about yourself is something we want women to embrace. Our skincare is about enhancing the look of your skin, making it the best it can be,” she says. 

“I feel very lucky to have grown up with such a great brand and to be part of its future,” she says. 

Pippa is empowering women, running a successful business and navigating uncertain times with compassion, empathy and exceptional leadership skills.  Follow her business, Ella Baché, on Instagram.
