Triumph and Disaster founder, Dion Nash, retired from a career with the New Zealand cricket team, to try his hand at business … and, good thing that he did. In delving into brand work with Kiwi vodka company, 42Below, Nash became a director of marketing, and continued to cultivate a vision for making plays off the field.
Years spent in the sun, sporting, gave Nash first-hand insight into the importance of skincare, and in April 2011 Triumph and Disaster was born. Names like “Gameface Moisturiser” and “On the Road” Travel Kit are nods to his past, with a fresh face turned towards the future of men’s grooming.
Triumph & Disaster's philosophy is to use the best of science combined with the best of nature to produce naturally derived but scientifically engineered products that work. They use local indigenous ingredients such as Horopito oil and Ponga fern extract blended with scientifically proven and natural ingredients from around the globe, such as clay from Australia, Jojoba extract from Mexico and Tamanu oil from Polynesia.
Dion Nash believes that the future of sustainable business is a path of integrity and honesty (great marketing and a rocking distribution system may also help) and that customers deserve at least this much from the brands they support. "We aim to respect nature, utilize science, create products of ritual and tools for preparation - so we can treat Triumph & Disaster, those two imposters just the same.".
