#FriendsofJINsoon Spotlight: David Pirrotta @DAVIDPIRROTTA
This week we are featuring our friend and amazing partner @DavidPirrotta as part of our #FriendsofJINsoon series.
David not only has a fantastic eye for all things beauty, but he also knows how to pick the best of the best when it comes to brands and launch them into the right stores. His sales & distribution company, @DavidPirrottaBrands represents some of the best-curated luxury beauty brands from around the world, including #JINsoon!
His latest endeavor Materiae is a highly curated beauty & lifestyle e-commerce store. In their own words: "From hair to toe, fragrance to face oil, Materiae only stocks brands that pass Pirrotta’s stringent set of standards. If a product isn’t a “triple threat”—i.e., an innovative formula housed in shelfie-worthy packaging created by a genuinely inspiring founder—you won’t find it on our shelves."
David really knows all things beauty and is an inspirational person who graciously took time out of his much-deserved vacation to create this video for us.
Bio: David's career began in New York City on the cosmetic floors of Bergdorf Goodman and Barneys New York. It was there where he learned in great detail how to sell, manage, and built esteemed relationships. His extensive beauty and fashion knowledge continued to grow and evolve in varied positions: Sales and Marketing Director at Jeffre Scott New York, Sales and Education Director for red flower, Sales & Business Development Director for The Art of Shaving, and Vice President of Sales for Sharps Barber and Shop. With over 20 years of industry experience, David was inspired by the demand for a boutique agency that helps build the foundation for brands to grow successfully. This laid the groundwork for his eponymous firm, David Pirrotta Brand Management and Distribution - known today as David Pirrotta Brands. Established February of 2010 in Los Angeles, he has since launched some of today's most coveted brands including ILIA Beauty and RODIN Olio Lusso, which was acquired by Estée Lauder in 2014. David's unwavering and creative eye for aesthetics, paired with his strategic business sense, has led him to partner and curate trade shows, participate in various consulting projects, and chairing advisory boards. Today, he leads his team in providing a sweeping array of customized services to each of our brands, bringing them to our customers, and expanding them into international markets.
