Brandon Gloster

CEO, co-founder

Brandon Gloster is the co-founder and CEO of merch., the first Black-Owned merchandise agency in the Broadway industry. Brandon's passion for the work is coupled with a desire to have thoughtful and meaningful conversations both on and off the stage. With merch., his hope is that a new conversation can begin that pushes people to rethink not just what we create and how we create it, but to broaden the scope of with whom we create. Brandon's love of entertainment is the source of a lot of his inspiration - from his first tattoo to the names of his dog and two snakes - and his want with merch. is to inspire others to be inspired by what they love.
