Matthew Andrews

Managing Consultant - Textiles & Chemicals

I am currently a Managing Consultant sitting within the Chemicals sector at Irving Knight. My personal focus is the Textiles, Textile & Leather Chemicals market which I have built from scratch, and in the process have acquired a deep network of professionals on a global scale. I work on a daily basis with clients and high-level candidates in technical and commercial functions, across a range of businesses in my market.

Within textile chemicals, I work on everything from manufacturers of technical, performance and protective textiles to producers and distributors of specialties and additives such as flame retardants, antimicrobials and processing stabilizers. My leather network focuses on dry and wet-end additives including process and finishing chemicals, coatings, dyes and other auxiliaries. Finally, within the wider textile market I work on roles with companies making floor and wallcoverings, apparel, linens, contract and healthcare fabrics, PPE and more.

Our client portfolio is diversified; boasting Industry leading Multinationals to innovative, high growth start-ups. We are always keen to expand our talent pool of candidates and our portfolio of repeat clients. If you are a professional in the chemical space looking for your next move, or are looking to hire, please reach out to me for a confidential discussion.
