Boiron: A Visionary Family-owed Company
History of A Great Family Adventure
Brothers Jean and Henri Boiron, twins united by their passion, devoted their lives to Boiron’s product development. Their entrepreneurial spirit and scientific rigor allowed them to advance from year to year and become pioneers in research and manufacturing processes.
The family adventure continued with their children, in particular, Christian and Thierry Boiron, who were at the helm of the company for more than 40 years, with the help of their sister Michèle. Having joined the company in 1970, Christian Boiron served as its CEO from 1976 to 2005, when Thierry Boiron became head of Boiron Laboratories. In 2011, when Christian Boiron returned to France following an assignment in the Italian subsidiary, he resumed the position of CEO while Thierry Boiron became Chairman of the Board of Directors. Then, in 2019, Christian Boiron definitively handed over the reins to Valérie Lorentz-Poinsot, who took up the position of CEO.
With 68% of the shares, the Boiron family is heavily involved in the life of the company. This family business model allows for a long-term vision and reveals an unwavering commitment to the Laboratories’ project.
