Scotts Miracle-Gro announced that Matthew Garth has been named executive vice president and CFO, effective December 1, 2022.

“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 Scotts Miracle-Gro.

Garth brings more than 25 years of financial experience to Scotts, 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.

“He has led all aspects of the core finance function and has successfully provided financial leadership in challenging times,” said Hagedorn.

Most recently, he was chief financial officer and senior vice president of treasury and finance for Minerals Technologies, Inc. He previously held senior financial positions with Alcoa, Inc., said the company.

“I look forward to joining Scotts Miracle-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,” said Garth.

Garth will succeed David Evans, a member of Scotts board, who was named interim CFO on August 30, 2022, and will continue in that role until Garth joins the company.

“I want to thank Dave Evans for his strong leadership during a critical time for our company,” said Hagedorn.
