Owner & Managing Director
Philipp’s first experience in the world of cosmetics came when he was a 14-year old student in Hamburg, spending his summer vacation at the Albrecht & Dill warehouse instead of at the beach with his friends. There, he assembled packages for the luxury brand Chanel, which was then distributed exclusively through the hanseatic business center in Germany. In the warehouses of the Osdorf neighborhood of Hamburg, Philipp learned the business of beauty from scratch, and developed a fine sense of perfumes and cosmetics, building the foundation of his career.
In 2001, after completing his dual studies, Philipp joined Albrecht & Dill as sales manager for Erno Laszlo and Annick Goutal — then the only two brands in the portfolio. During his career in the field and over the course of numerous trips abroad, Philipp witnessed the rise and fall of many brands, but again and again, he also discovered valuable beauty products with high potential, which he brought into the German market and which now make up a crucial part of the company’s portfolio. In 2003, Philipp purchased shares of the company, and became owner and Managing Director of Albrecht & Dill Cosmetics GmbH. Since January 2014, he has been the sole owner and Managing Director of the Hamburg company.
