Born in Peckham, South East London in 1942, Caroline left school at 16 to pursue a career as a journalist on then influential fashion title Honey Magazine, before setting up her own PR consultancy, at the age of 20 in 1962. She started her business at a time when the industry was a male-dominated environment and there were few if any female entrepreneurs.
Then in 1992, Caroline became a founding member of CEW UK and became President in 1995, a position she has held for over 20 years. Cosmetic Executive Women is a business organisation who promote the contributions of women in the beauty industry through the three pillars of education, philanthropy and recognition. Current membership stands at in excess of 1,000 members drawn from leading brands, retailers, manufacturers, media and support services for the beauty industry.
To recognise the achievements throughout her career, Caroline received an MBE in 2018 in recognition for her work in promoting UK Beauty, her mentoring of female entrepreneurs and young executives and charitable work within the sector
