Dubitsky’s career has been dedicated to transforming commodities into desirables and turning consumer insights into disruptive, emotionally charged brands. He has successfully engaged with a wide array of companies dedicated to breaking category molds via design and consumer-centric thinking. He previously served as a founding board member of green-cleaning brand Method Products and then as co-founder of lip and skincare maker Eos Products.

Through hello products LLC, Dubitsky and his team seek to disrupt and elevate the staid $40 billion global oral care category. Under Dubitsky’s charter and creative vision, hello® brings together thoughtful, come-hither design and highly natural formulations that embody the brand’s naturally friendly™ mantra. Dubitsky conceived the brand and took it from concept to commercialization in only six months. Hello currently has distribution in approximately 20,000-plus top U.S. retail stores and leading e-commerce sites, and has become the No. 2 natural oral care brand across food, drug and mass channels in the U.S. in record time.

Dubitsky’s career and legacy is fueled by his mission to make the things we regularly use better and more beautiful, and in doing so, ultimately create bright spots in our day.
