MIDDLETON, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Olympic Curling Gold Medal winner Matt Hamilton has joined the REMINGTON® BEARD BOSS® Brand Ambassador team, the Remington personal care division of Spectrum Brands Holdings announced today.
During his remarkable run-up to winning a gold medal at the recent Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, Matt wore a well-manicured mustache he kept precision-groomed using REMINGTON styling tools. As the team gained momentum, Matt’s mustache attracted national attention and was followed with the hashtag “#mustachemilitia.” With this groundswell of support, Matt and team overcame tremendous odds to come from behind and win the gold for Team USA.
“Matt is not a new Spectrum Brands employee as he has worked for the past 5 years in our R&D group developing new consumer home appliances,” said Steve Fraundorfer, President of Global Home and Personal Care Appliances. “Matt is a detail-oriented and driven member of our team committed to helping our products win in the marketplace. He brings to work the same passion for winning he demonstrated so well in the Olympics by making our products great every day in his job at Spectrum Brands.
“It is an honor now to have Matt and his famous mustache join our renowned BEARD BOSS team,” Fraundorfer added. “His ability to highlight versatility and style shows how Remington can help men of all walks of life achieve the best version of themselves with a little creativity and passion.”
Being a BEARD BOSS® means finding your individual style. Your facial hair represents who you are and what you’re all about. It’s important to you, and that’s why Remington created a line of BEARD BOSS approved products that put you in control of your look.
