With a proven track record of fostering business growth and leadership, Dickstein has played an instrumental role in expanding PLZ Personal Care’s business over the last few years. PLZ’s full-service personal care network includes more than 1.2 million combined square feet of manufacturing space and 83 filling lines across seven locations for the production and distribution of a broad range of aerosol and liquid products.

Despite the industry-wide supply challenges, we continue to demonstrate to our customers our commitment to better serve their needs through innovative products, high quality, and logistical and technical expertise. I am proud of our world class team and their commitment to enabling our customers to succeed.”

Before joining Liquid Technologies, Dickstein served as CEO/president of two other private equity-owned personal care businesses with a track record of EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization) growth and successful transactions, which followed 20 years of leadership roles across two multi-national consumer goods firms, Clorox and Mars, Inc.
