Know Your Consumer by Being Your Consumer with Matt Mullenax, Founder & CEO of Huron – Business of Fitness #71

Matt Mullenax started Huron under the premise that the world didn’t need another $40 body wash, and guys everywhere need access to great products at an approachable price. A native Ohioan, Matt hopes to fill an audience void: the fact that consumers in non-coastal markets aren’t often shown the same variety of high-quality products as their coastal peers. Huron was built to offer A+ personal care for guys everywhere. Matt has worked on both the finance and brand side of the consumer industry — Winona Capital Management, and Nike and Bonobos (6th employee), respectively. He earned an MBA from Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business, and a BA from Brown University.
