Summary

Edit
My name is Matthew A. W. Herman. I am a 2015 graduate of California Polytechnic University, Pomona. There, I obtained a Bachelor of Science in Apparel, Merchandising, and Management. I have worked in the apparel industry for over 7 years, and within that, 4 years of managerial responsibilities. I have worked for surf, skate, and action-sports brands; as well as, major denim and dress-wear retailers. I have a passion for the consumer-centric apparel industry and a strong desire to develop my professional skills within a brand's merchandising team. My studies have prepared me for a career in the apparel industry. Fortunately, our thorough program covered both sides of the apparel-industry; including retail (buying, operations, sales, marketing, etc.) and production (CMT, Cut Order Planning, Sourcing, Fabrication Science, etc.). I have strong interest in both sectors, because one day I would like to have my own vertically-integrated mill and consequently, my own brand. I have interned for a merchandising director and assistant and loved seeing the development of a seasonal product line. Also, this past Spring Quarter, I interned for a London-based Distributor and Wholesaler. I enjoyed contributing to the production-side of the apparel industry. I am looking for a F/T or paid-internship with a brand's merchandising, retail, or production team. Thank you for your consideration, Matthew A. W. Herman
