Aman Advani

CEO & Co-Founder, Ministry of Supply


Aman Advani is cofounder and CEO of Ministry of Supply, a clothing company born out of MIT that is creating a new category of apparel: Performance Professional. Early in his career, Aman experienced firsthand the limitations and discomfort of business apparel when traveling as a consultant, and it sparked the idea to merge the performance and comfort of athletic gear with the look and aesthetic of business wear. As CEO, Aman is responsible for the strategic growth of the company and has expanded Ministry of Supply’s online presence to multiple brick-and-mortar locations across the United States. Aman is frequently recognized for his accomplishments and asked to speak at leadership and retail events, including keynotes and panels at industry conferences nationwide. In addition to his work with Ministry of Supply, Aman is an active member of the Boston community, committed to giving back to the city where the Ministry of Supply brand was born.
