Brianne West

Hi! I'm Brianne.

Environmentalist & Social Entrepreneur

I am a New Zealand entrepreneur and founder and CEO of Ethique – a regenerative beauty brand founded in Aotearoa New Zealand and now sold in over 22 countries, in more than 8000 stores.
I was named a ‘ Top 100 Global Thinker’ by Foreign Policy magazine in 2016, the 2019 NZ EY 'Young Entrepreneur of the Year' and the One Young World's Entrepreneur of the Year in 2020.
I am passionate about protecting and restoring our environment and I believe that business should benefit everyone involved, from suppliers, to the team - not just shareholders.
I help purpose-led entrepreneurs start and scale enterprises that solve some of the biggest problems we face.
