8 â€œA man is a success if he gets up in the morning, and goes to bed at night, and in between does what he wants to do.â€? -Bob Dylan
I have been working with JBCStyle Fashion Recruiters for many years now. Currently as the Director of HR for David Yurman, and previously Director of HR for Chanel as well as a few other luxury fashion brands, I can truly say that working with JBC has been an absolute pleasure. What I admire most about JBC is the speed at which they are able to respond with qualified candidates regardless of the position and level. In this fast paced fashion industry, time is of the essence, and with very little information from me, they can produce the RIGHT candidates every time. Not only that, but they handle the entire process including rejections with such ease, it makes my life as an HR Director so much easier. I highly recommend JBCStyle Fashion Recruiters to any company who wants the right candidates quickly and cannot be bothered with all the details. They are my favorite recruiting firm to work with. - Carl Huttenberger, David Yurman

20 KEITH GELLER
CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER
A New York native, Keith Geller graduated from the University of Wisconsin Madison class of 97’ with a major in Political Science and a minor in Business. After graduation he traveled through parts of Europe and Africa before settling in Seville, Spain where he met his wife Monica, with whom he has two wonderful young children. Upon returning from Spain, Keith obtained his NYC commercial real-estate license and got a taste for the fashion industry leasing office/production space to businesses in New York’s garment district. His next career move incidentally introduced him to the world of employment agencies. Hoping to obtain a Wall Street trading position during the stock market boom, Keith met with financial headhunter/Principal and was instead hired to work and mentor directly under him. It was during this time that Keith obtained much of his foundation of knowledge on all aspects of the staffing industry. After 2 years of full cycle recruiting, an opportunity to enter the fast paced equity trading market presented itself with one of his clients and Keith spent the next 4 years riding the roller coaster before being summoned back to the world of recruiting by his life long friend Bryan Zaslow. Since joining Bryan as a Partner and Chief Operating Officer, the JBC companies have grown from 6 employees to 50+ and have opened offices in Los Angeles, Orange County and San Francisco as well as numerous satellite offices throughout the US. Keith has been instrumental in this growth as well as in securing and negotiating the move of JBC’s New York headquarters to the heart of the fashion district. He also designed its open and welcoming loft-like space. Keith proudly serves as the Director of the Ira Zaslow Foundation and was the driving force behind the annual Fashion Scholarship Program that debuted with tremendous success in 2007. This program has raised upwards of $65,000 to date and continues to grow with each year. For Keith, the satisfaction that comes with JBC’s overwhelming success and growth is only dwarfed by the sheer enjoyment of taking the journey with the ones he loves.

I view the role of a recruitment firm as an extension of our HR team, which is generally why I am so selective about who we associate ourselves with. It is critical to me that all candidates are followed up with and given appropriate feedback. JBC makes the connection with candidates quickly and always keeping the reflection of the brand top of mind. In the 4 years I have worked with JBC, I have been both pleased and impressed with their ability to understand the ever changing needs of our business as well as the subtle nuances of our brand that make us unique. In placing candidates with us, the task is beyond identifying the skills that we need to perform a job, but finding the right person for the job, with the right soft skills and cultural fit. Bryan and his team just "get it." I am thrilled to have them as our partners in search.

Ira Zaslow, an outstanding family man, dedicated colleague and dear friend was a person who wanted his children, family and friends to contribute to their community and exhibit the strong moral character he so greatly possessed. To honor him and carry on his special legacy within our family, we have established this foundation. The primary goal of this Foundation will be to honor the heroes & victims of the September 11th attacks
on the World Trade Center in New York as well as the continued goal of ridding terrorism from our lives and the future lives to come. Through the generous support and donations of family, friends and colleagues, the Foundation plans to help build memorials, provide crisis counseling for victims, implement an academic scholarship in Ira's name, and execute several other cause related projects in the weeks, months and years to come.

was nothing but modesty in what he did, and one of those rare guys you learn a lot about when they’re gone.” said Bryan. “I’ve had people come up and say, ‘He helped me get my first job,’ or ‘I didn’t have the means to go to school and he helped me get a scholarship.’ His was not a big, boisterous voice.” -Peter Chapman
