President & CEO, Patchology
Chris Hobson is the President & CEO of Patchology. The company was originally founded in 2006 to develop novel transdermal patch technologies, primarily for drug delivery and other medical uses. After numerous successful patch development partnerships and patent-filings, the team realized that the company’s transdermal expertise and technologies could bring a new standard of treatment to traditional cosmetic skincare. The brand was launched in 2014, and Patchology’s eye patches, lip patches and facial masks have quickly become a favorite with makeup artists, celebrities and consumers at Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Blue Mercury, Cos Bar and many others. To build the Patchology business, Hobson leverages his experience and network from his time as a brand manager at Procter & Gamble, in addition to his executive roles at several entrepreneurial ventures. He earned his BA at McGill University and his MBA at Harvard Business School.
