Incorporated in 1962 in NY - Founded by members of the Lauder family. Estee Lauder was the co-founder of the famous cosmetics company that is named after her. Time magazine listed her as one of the 20 most influential business people of the 20th century and in 2004 she received the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Her son Ronald Lauder is a businessman, philanthropist, and community civic leader who sat on the board of directors of the Estee Lauder Companies Inc. from 1968-2009, and continues to serve as Chairman of Clinique Laboratories, LLC.
