David Pirrotta — Founder
From makeup counter to mogul, David’s career is nothing short of the American dream, beauty edition. The floor at Barneys and Bergdorf Goodman in NYC are what ignited the spark for sales, catapulting him into high level Sales, Director, and VP roles at Jeffre Scott, Red Flower, The Art of Shaving, and Sharps Barber and Shop. This culminated into 25 years of deeply intimate and extraordinarily passionate industry experience that left but one option— to open his own boutique agency.
More than just a beauty bureau, David’s knowledge and experience about what makes a brand successful has created an altruistic niche. When he finds a small brand he believes in, he helps build them the foundation for organic growth. With this mutual success blossomed his eponymous firm, David Pirrotta Brand Management and Distribution, known today as David Pirrotta Brands.
ILIA Beauty and RODIN Olio Lusso just a few cult-favorite brands David has helped bring to the forefront of the beauty world. Sachajuan and Grown Alchemist both received pivotal backing while part of the David Pirrotta brands family. Today, he’s created a platform to share ideas from thought leaders in the skin care and makeup world, interviews with founders, and general industry intel and musings via his shoppable site and journal, Materiae. He leads his team in providing an array of customized services to each of his housed brands, all of which are tailored to help them grow their customer bases and expand into international markets.
