ScottsMiracle-Gro names Matthew Garth as CFO

The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company announced that Matthew Garth has been named executive vice president and chief financial officer, effective December 1, 2022.

Garth brings more than 25 years of financial experience to ScottsMiracle-Gro, having led a full complement of functions in both corporate and operating finance, from treasury and investor relations to financial planning and analysis, among others. Most recently, he was a chief financial officer and senior vice president of treasury and finance for Minerals Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: MTX). He previously held senior financial positions with Alcoa, Inc.

“Matt displays an impressive combination of financial acumen and high performance, making him an invaluable addition to our executive team,” said Jim Hagedorn, chairman, and CEO of ScottsMiracle-Gro. “He has led all aspects of the core finance function and has successfully provided financial leadership in challenging times. Just as importantly, he is an action-oriented partner to the operations side of the business, giving me confidence that he will quickly make a positive impact as we further rightsize our cost structure and improve our financial performance.

“Matt’s tenure in his previous leadership roles was appealing, as it signaled his willingness not only to take full responsibility for achieving results over the long term but also to operate effectively through wide-ranging situations.”

Garth will succeed David Evans, a member of the ScottsMiracle-Gro Board of Directors, who was named interim CFO on August 30, 2022, and will continue in that role until Garth joins the Company. Evans will remain as a close advisor to Garth through the calendar year to ensure a smooth transition.

“I look forward to joining ScottsMiracle-Gro and working closely with the team to navigate near-term challenges and to position the Company for financial strength and long-term value creation,” Garth said.
