Matthew began his career in the executive training program at Saks Fifth Avenue. He later went on to work at three distinct family-owned companies: first as a cosmetic buyer at Barneys New York, then overseeing global sales for Kiehl’s, and finally developing Prada’s beauty division and managing Helmut Lang Parfums. These experiences, along with his history of suffering from skin conditions such as eczema, seborrhea and rosacea, helped Matthew identify an opportunity for a local, family-owned brand creating simple but luxurious products.
For ten years preceding the launch of MALIN+GOETZ, Andrew worked as US Marketing Director for the family-owned, Swiss-based design manufacturer Vitra. His keen eye for design is reflected in our stores’ modern interpretation of the traditional apothecary as well as our chemist’s label-inspired, minimalist packaging. During Andrew’s tenure at Vitra, he found and cultivated the careers of emerging architects and industrial designers, many of whom would be later tapped to collaborate on MALIN+GOETZ branding and store designs.
