Our Team Members
Meet The Team
From his simple Texan upbringing, Joe spent his childhood playing soccer, listening to Fleetwood Mac, & taking road trips with his family. As he grew older he began working in fashion for the early Abercrombie + Fitch days (cue strong A+F aroma). However, he was quickly taken to Ralph Lauren for a recruiting role in NYC, then to Guess, and then to some of his most iconic days at James Perse, Helmut Lang, and Theory. His career flourished as he made meaningful connections with industry leaders and helped to build some of fashion’s most successful brands.
With his life pillars being Faith & Family, Joe places a high value in being with his beautiful wife and 2 toddlers. He has a passion for relationships, business, and adding meaning to every scenario he is placed in. Along with his longtime friend Jonny, the two have embarked on multiple thriving business ventures and are excited to continue helping their teams grow!
When first meeting Jonny, you would imagine he was a Californian native from his LA-savvy confidence and connection. However, Jonny was actually raised in Upper Michigan (The U.P.), and transplanted to California immediately after graduating! Jonny has over a decade and a half of experience in retail management where he was equipped with all the tools to co-found the top solutions for retail managers. Jonny strategizes business development and brand partnerships and believes in the power of listening to others stories' and connecting on a personal level. His relationship-building skills have attributed to his multiple career victories with some of fashion's top brands. While not working, Jonny can be found spending time with his beautiful wife & coaching his four kid's sports teams.
