Matt Garth

Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer & Chief Administrative Officer

Matt brings a unique and important perspective shaped by decades of experience that have taken him from the shop floor to the C-suite and boardroom. He’s able to develop a deep understanding of all facets of the organization, see the whole picture and serve as a strategic partner to the business while enhancing credibility with all stakeholders.

He often says he is most energized as a leader when he is as close to the business as possible – owning the P&L and making decisions that foster great opportunities for associates, new products for customers and consumers and new paths of growth for the company.

It’s an approach he strives to instill in the entire finance team, believing his colleagues play a critical role in informing the development of the company’s strategy in ways that go beyond accounting, forecasting and financial controls.

Through an intense focus on process, a strategic business perspective and a disciplined approach to capital allocation, he empowers the team to have an informed voice to help operators and other leaders achieve the most value optimizing outcomes.

Throughout his career, Matt has led a full complement of corporate and operating functions and has delivered a track record of shareholder value creation. Prior to joining ScottsMiracle-Gro in December 2022, he was chief financial officer and senior vice president of treasury and finance for Minerals Technologies, Inc. and held senior financial positions with Alcoa, Inc.

An avid gym rat and lawn and garden enthusiast, Matt says family is his number 1 priority – and that includes his wife, daughter, son and their Cavachon.
