Matthew was named President of the Gymboree corporation in 2005 and CEO in 2006.
While serving as President and CEO, Gymboree’s revenue nearly doubled, growing to more than $1.1B. He retired in 2012 to spend time with family, but he was inspired to act
after seeing The True Cost, a documentary showing the impact that fast-fashion is having
on the planet and the people who make the clothes. He came out of retirement in 2016 to
launch his latest venture, Hope & Henry, with a mission tomake a difference
Hope & Henry is a children’s apparel company with a unique business model, making
organic and sustainable clothing affordable to everyone while sharing profits with the
women and men sewing the clothes.
Hope & Henry is a new line of apparel for babies and children, was born from the belief that beautiful, high quality, organic clothing can be affordable for all, not just a select few,
without sacrificing the well- being of their people and our planet.
Our mission is to influence the fashion industry for good. By using organic cotton, making
clothes that last, and sharing profits with the factory workers, we believe we can make a
difference on the impact fashion has on future generations.
70% of the fall collection is made with organic cotton and the spring collection will be made with over 90% organic cotton.
A limited selection is available now on Amazon, with the full collection coming out on September 15
