Matthew started his career in the Executive Training Program at Saks Fifth Avenue following university in 1991. He then worked as a Cosmetics Buyer at the family owned Barneys New York. Three years later, he was approached to oversee global sales development for the then family-operated Kiehl’s. After six years and Kiehl’s sale to L’Oreal, Matthew moved to Prada to develop and manage fragrance licensing with P&G. By 2002, Matthew and Andrew Goetz started a business plan for MALIN+GOETZ, launching the brand in March 2004.
For ten years preceding the launch of MALIN+GOETZ, Andrew worked as Marketing Director for family-owned Vitra, a Swiss-based design manufacturer. Andrew’s responsibilities included identifying and cultivating the architects and industrial designers for which Vitra is known. Both the New York flagship MALIN+GOETZ store design and graphic team behind the packaging were organic extensions of previous collaborations and relationships. In addition to using his creative expertise for MALIN+GOETZ, Andrew has also established himself as chef for a monthly dinner party that Food & Wine Magazine call one of Manhattan’s “best.”
