As part of my series about the leadership lessons of accomplished business leaders, I had the pleasure of interviewing Clint McKinlay.
A seasoned global business executive, Clint McKinlay is chief executive officer of Ruby Ribbon, an innovative, social commerce-driven women’s shapewear and intimates company. McKinlay brings deep experience in business development, operations, finance, sales and social commerce to the company.
Before joining Ruby Ribbon in January 2020, he served as a strategic advisor to Yves Rocher and spent more than two years as VP, worldwide sales for JAFRA Cosmetics, expanding into markets across Asia, Europe and South America. From 2014–17, as VP, field development for Shaklee Corporation, he led growth in North America for the billion-dollar wellness company. Previously he spent three years as national director, sales & training for Rodan + Fields, taking the skincare company from startup to annual sales of over $350 million.
Both a leader and an entrepreneur, McKinlay ran BuildSTRONG, a consulting firm to social-sales ventures, served as VP, business development for the health brand Sibu, and launched the Salt Lake City-based beauty/wellness startup Zrii, which reaped the most successful first year in the history of direct sales with more than $43 million in revenue.
