Michael Q. Pugliese, LE, became the third- generation CEO of Circadia by Dr. Pugliese, Inc. in 2006. Michael is the son of Patti Pugliese. In a few short years under Michael’s leadership, the Circadia brand has grown to achieve international recognition and distribution, largely through its vigorous support of the American esthetic industry trade shows and magazines.
In the tradition of his grandfather, Michael’s popular product-neutral scientific lectures around the world are often attended by leaders of other professional skin care companies, already fans of the books by Dr. Pugliese. Traveling an average of 40 weeks a year, Michael, at 6’7” in his trademark monogrammed scrubs, is visible as a speaker at shows all over the US, and at the annual esthetic events in Sydney, London, Toronto, Mexico City and Vancouver.
Michael attended the esthetics course in Pennsylvania and is a licensed esthetician. He is a member of the Society of Cosmetic Chemists and regularly attends their education events to stay on the cutting edge of new product development.
