Natural leader

Calgary accountant Lisa Costello has proven her flair for business, by bringing the first Canadian location of UK-based natural health and beauty retailer Neal’s Yard Remedies to Canada.

Already a staple in the UK health and beauty market, Neal’s Yard Remedies didn’t have much of a presence in Canada until Calgary accountant Lisa Costello got involved. She fell in love with Neal’s line of 300 organic and ethically sourced products while working for Ernst & Young in London and decided to bring the chain home with her. "I love the natural, quality ingredients, and I was looking for the next step in my career, so I called them," says Costello, now CEO of the retailer’s Canadian operations. The flagship Calgary store opened with significant buzz in May, with plans for a web shop and future locations across Canada.
