what we do
Call it a happy accident but what started out as a small-scale solo distribution project in 2011 has evolved into a business that now manages a portfolio of innovative beauty brands. Our first HQ was a car boot; now we have teams working out of offices in the United Kingdom, Germany and The Netherlands.
Offering brand management, business development services and distribution across the European market, from online e-commerce to brick and mortar stores like Sephora, Selfridges and Boots, we’ve got our finger on the pulse and ear to the ground to ensure our brands reach the right consumers.
Vibrant, dynamic and results-driven with a passion for ethical and sustainable growth strategies, our sights are set on becoming the go-to European distributor for beauty’s next big things.
All the best,
Evelien de Vries, founder of MDV
