About Six

Six is on a mission to reinvent the $10Bn global insect repellent category.

Most of us spend a lot more time in the backyard than the backwoods but we still get bitten by annoying (and sometimes dangerous) insects like mosquitoes, ticks and no-see-ums. As macro environmental change makes “bite season” longer and longer each year, we need repellent products designed to be safe and everyday effective.

The Six brand and product lines are being developed through research and collaboration between parents, designers, entomologists, e-commerce specialists and a celebrated creative agency in one of America’s “buggiest” regions.

The brand will launch in 2022 via direct to consumer online channels, leading digital marketplaces, wholesale, speciality retail and hospitality.

As CEO of Six, you will steward the brand’s successful multi-channel launch and establish Six as an everyday seasonal staple across the target segments. In partnership with the Six team and advisors, you will scale a form-breaking brand in this stale category, while providing enhanced protection to families around the world.
