Margot Grant Witz Vice-President Creative Global Direction
Elizabeth Grant International Inc.
Margot Grant Witz grew up as a student of beauty and style. Her grandmother, Elizabeth Grant, is the founder and CEO of luxury skin care company Elizabeth Grant International and her mother, Marion Witz, is the president. Several years ago, Elizabeth welcomed Margot into the company. The two women now work side by side making Elizabeth Grant Skin Care a widely successful beauty brand on the rise. Margot now proudly holds the position of Beauty Director and she is the company spokesperson for Elizabeth Grant Skin Care shows on ShopNBC. For inspiring TheWIFTS Foundation "IT!" Award, Margot Grant Witz is the recipient in 2011.
Much like her grandmother, Margot Grant Witz is a citizen of the world. Hailing from South Africa originally, Margot now calls Toronto, Canada home. Before moving to Toronto, Margot graduated with an international business degree from the prestigious Grenoble Ecole De Management in the south of France. Now, she spends a great deal of time traveling the globe promoting her namesake beauty brand and opening up new markets for the company.
Margot Grant Witz is a wonder executive for the company. At 26, her instincts for the business have injected the brand with a new customer base and has resulted in a product that is often heralded a 'beauty favourite' by top editors around the world. Margot has a strong understanding of the international marketplace and an innate understanding of the importance of brand image. Over the last several years, Margot has redesigned the company logo, created new product packaging, developed new and innovative products, and truly taken the brand forward making it well known to an even larger audience.
Margot is currently expanding on a new range of products aimed at a slightly younger and 'on-the-go' clientele, called 'The Socializer'. The first product under Margot's development and creative direction, an eye treatment duo, has already won a prestigious finalist award from the HBA International Package Design Awards.
Following her grandmother's example, Margot also knows that attending festivals, charity galas, and society events are another important part of the business. Margot brings the Elizabeth Grant Skin Care brand to the red carpet with style and class. She spends time with celebrity clients and works hard to build and maintain those relationships. As a result, the company now boasts an A-list following with fans such as J.Lo, Blake Lively, Rosario Dawson, and Petra Nemcova among others.
Nevertheless, it's not all business and networking for Margot. She has a keen sense of the real world around her and a deep need to give back. The charitable division at Elizabeth Grant 'EG Cares' is also run by Margot. EG Cares provides education and gifts in-kind to non-profit and charitable organizations. Recently, Margot spent time in workshops for women living with cancer and gave them Elizabeth Grant's Rejuvenating Serums with Torricelumn™. Margot recognizes the importance of feeling good about oneself and positive thinking while going through treatment.
Currently, Margot also sits on the board, as the youngest member, of the Canadian Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association. One of the Association's primary goals is to establish and maintain an optimum business environment that promotes Canadian industry's global competitiveness through smart regulation. She brings in an important viewpoint to meetings with her expertise in social media and marketing.
From the moment Margot took her first step, Elizabeth had her practicing in 'training' heels. Now, Elizabeth has Margot by her side as they continue to build the luxury brand that is Elizabeth Grant Skin Care. They may be generations apart, but together Elizabeth and Margot Grant Witz make an unbeatable beauty duo.
