The Estée Lauder Companies, Chairman Emeritus, Leonard A. Lauder, has revealed the cover and title for his highly anticipated memoir set to be released on November 17. Titled, “The Company I Keep: My Life in Beauty,” Mr. Lauder shares the business and life lessons he learned as well as the adventures he had while helping transform the business his mother founded in 1946 in the family kitchen into an iconic global prestige beauty company. During his 60-year tenure, which includes leading the company as CEO and Chairman, Mr. Lauder was responsible for the company’s expansion from a single brand to now having more than 25 brands, whose products are sold in over 150 countries and territories.

Known as The Estée Lauder Companies’ “Chief Teaching Officer,” the book offers insights on honing ambition, leveraging success, learning from mistakes, and growing an international company in an age of economic turbulence, uncertainty and fierce competition. He reflects on his childhood, growing up during the Great Depression, the vibrant decades of the post-World War II boom, and pays tribute to his mother Estée Lauder, and to the employees of the company both past and present. He also shares inside stories about the company, including his cutthroat rivalry with Charles Revson of Revlon and others.

The book is available now for pre-order now at select retailers. For more information on Mr. Lauder’s memoir, please follow along at @thecompanyIkeepbook.
