A note from our founder, Gemma Harling
I have a massive passion for all things Beauty!
I love to discover new brands, meeting the people and hearing the stories behind them.
I founded Lumi from a desire to help brand owners and entrepreneurs achieve their ambitions and grow their business into the empire of their dreams.
As a former retail buyer, I am hugely results driven and gain pleasure in helping my clients reach the commercial success they deserve.
Prior to Lumi Consultancy, I was the Senior Buyer for one of the UK’s largest Beauty retailers, working across Cosmetics & Fragrance.
It was a fantastic job, working with some of the most globally recognised brands, planning their annual strategies and creating impactful in-store and online animations for their new launches.
I was fortunate enough to travel a lot, and got to test all of the latest products before they hit the market.
Inspired by you.
But the part which excited me most was working with fresh, up-and-coming brands. The creatives, the challengers, the innovators.
With this in mind, I decided to step off the corporate ladder, in favour of a more fulfilling role setting up this business to help you lovely lot!
