Gail Federici
CEO, Federici Brands

Gail Federici is widely known for her partnership with internationally acclaimed hairstylist John Frieda. With Frieda she co-founded his original professional hair care company in 1989. By the time Federici and Frieda sold their company to Kao Brands in 2002, Federici, a serial entrepreneur, was already building her next brands, which fall under her corporate canopy of Federici Brands LLC. She reassembled her all-star team of beauty innovators and thought leaders to continue the legacy of break-through technologies and products.

Federici Brands brand portfolio includes Time Bomb, transformational anti-aging care for skin, body and hair, as well as myface cosmetics, a color-cosmetics range. She is an active fundraiser for Boston Children's Hospital. In 2010, she teamed up with John Frieda to form HAIRraising, an international fundraiser benefiting the hospital and raising more than $2 million, to date. She also sits on the Board of Trustees at Boston Children's Hospital.
