- Master & Dynamic
Jonathan Levine, 54, launched the design-driven premium audio company Master & Dynamic in May 2014. From a mere idea to a coveted brand with an increasing number of products, Master & Dynamic has been built on the same principles that drive Mr. Levine: design, art, creativity, collaboration, technology and a desire to create high-quality products that inspire. With Mr. Levine at the helm, M&D is rapidly expanding and can now be found in over 400 retailers worldwide, including 200 Apple Stores and luxury outlets such as Bergdorf Goodman, Ralph Lauren, Neiman Marcus, Colette (Paris), Selfridges (London) and more. Along with its growing list of retail partners, Master & Dynamic has also partnered with leaders such as private membership work space NeueHouse, premium womenswear and accessories brand Proenza Schouler and aluminum travel case brand Zero Halliburton. In the spirit of creative collaboration, Master & Dynamic has also worked with a number of industry-leading artists such as rock band Mumford & Sons, indie rock band Polica and jazz trumpeter Christian Scott, as well as famed artist and photographer Erik Madigan Heck.
After earning an MBA in Finance from the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business and an undergraduate degree in English from the University of Pennsylvania, Mr. Levine went on to hold several positions on Wall Street in banking and investment management between 1987-1993. He used this experience to start his career as an entrepreneur, launching two successful consumer products companies – Team Products International in 1994 and Lancer & Loader Group LLC in 2005, where he serves as CEO.
