In Memory of Guy Langer

21 Jun 2024 8:37 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Guy Langer, a cherished and long-time member of the BIW community.

Guy founded Qumulus Group in 2008 and dedicated his career to the Personal Care and Nutritional Products industries. As President of Qumulus, he represented several prestigious manufacturers of natural, plant-based ingredients, including Inducherm (Switzerland), GreenTech (France), Indena (Italy), Custom Ingredients (U.S.), American Natural Products (U.S.), and Barnet (U.S.).

Before founding Qumulus Group, Guy spent 20 years with DDChemco, a leading distributor of personal care ingredients in the Western United States, where he played a key role in building the company. He also worked with Integrated Health, marketing unique amino acid formulas for the medical industry.

Guy was a pillar in the beauty industry community. As a founding member of Beauty Industry West (BIW) in 1991, he held numerous positions, including President in 2014 and Vice President in 2013. He served as Education Chair and Sponsorship Chair for many years. Within the Society of Cosmetic Chemists-California Chapter (SCC), Guy's leadership was exemplary. He served as Chairman, Scientific Seminar Chair, Awards Chair, Dinner Dance Co-Chair, and Education Chair for 22 years. His exceptional contributions were recognized with the SCC Chapter Merit Award, which he received twice—an unprecedented honor.

Guy's immense contributions to our industry and to BIW and SCC are immeasurable. His boundless energy, passion, and financial support have left an indelible mark on our history. Beyond his professional achievements, Guy was a devoted supporter of Para Los Ninos, an organization that provides education and resources to children in the LA Barrio. Under his influence, Para Los Ninos became BIW's annual charity partner for several years.

Guy is survived by his beloved wife, Kendra.
