Dominic Abbott is the co-founder, Executive Vice President-Chief Operating Officer and owner of Abbott Research Group, Inc. (ARG). Dominic grew up in Pittsburgh and began his business career with a successful hair salon. From there, he launched his flourishing women’s hair goods business, Abbott Tresses, which manufactured products in Hong Kong and employed over 5000 people. He still holds three U.S. patents on his products.

His innovations and creativity quickly drove him to the top of the hair-goods industry. Mr. Abbott’s drive and business acumen enabled him to travel the world, earning him the respect of the international business community. Subsequently, Bristol-Myers purchased his company, retaining him as President of the Abbott Tresses Division, as well as naming him a vice president of Bristol-Myers, Clairol Division.

After investing wisely, he built other thriving businesses in the Pittsburgh area. These include Abbott Investment and Abbott Management co., Inc., which was formed to manage real-estate investment properties, and Food Service Management Associates. Food Service Management Associates oversaw operation of Mr. Abbott’s 10 restaurants, including Hillary’s, Dingbats, Abate, and Juno Trattoria. He is one of the pioneers in bringing casual, full-service dining to Pittsburgh.

In 1999, he and his wife founded Abbott Research Group, Inc. (ARG). ARG was created to research and develop personal-healthcare products—products that are all backed with company-funded medical research. ARG is primarily targeting women’s health issues, as well as developing intellectual property.

ARG now has four U.S. issued patents, worldwide patents on the Water Works device and two patents pending for products under development. Starting in 2002, Mr. Abbott divested himself from the restaurant business and now focuses on the launch of ARG products.

Mr. Abbott received the Medallion of Honor from the Italian Heritage Society of America in 1994. He is on the board of directors of the Western Pennsylvania Chapter of the Leukemia Lymphoma Society of America and the St. Margaret Hospital Foundation.
