Matt Pruitt

Executive Vice President & Senior Analyst

Matt grew up in a retail family, spent endless summers “shopping stores“, visiting merchants, and seeing new fashion lines. After graduating from college with degrees in both business and philosophy, he gravitated to the family business, quickly becoming a top analyst at Blacks.

Matt knows how to best flow merchandise to increase cash flow, and is very familiar with customers’ vendor lines, and the importance of vendor relationships. He likes to make sure that all parts of a merchant’s business are working together as whole.

Matt lives in Boston, and loves playing guitar in his free time. Otherwise, he’s dedicated to helping his customers weather the dramatic changes happening in the retail environment.

Planning & Communication

A great analyst not only needs to know how to process inventory data to optimize operations – they also need to be able to communicate these ideas in a way that allows merchants to make quick, data-driven decisions. Matt takes the time to really get to know his clients so he can provide the most  relevant information possible.


Matt joined Blacks full-time in 2010, and quickly become a trusted consultant to many men’s and women’s wear retailers, both online and off. He also specializes in multi-store operations, creating store-by-store plans that roll up to unified goals.
