JBCStyle: Retail Networking Style

Last night we held our first Fashion Retail and Networking event at The Ainsworth.

Recently voted the #1 sports bar in Manhattan by Zagats, the space was the ideal, laid-back setting for conversation and cocktails. Paige Group's Brian Mazza was a constant presence and our point person; his attention to detail and professionalism assured our loyalty. We highly recommend the venue for all your business events. (Please don't ask about the Baked Mac and Cheese with parmesan bread crumb crust or the Braised Short Rib Grilled Cheese. . .it's back to diet style today) Representatives from American Eagle, Burberry, Temperley London, L'Occitane, Neiman Marcus, David Yurman, The Limited, Swarovski, Facconable, Eileen Fisher, Montblanc, Converse and more mingled with candidates looking to work in the retail industry. Of course the JBCStyle team at the New York office were on hand to faciliate introductions.

Senior Vice President Jennifer Kirschner (pictured below with CEO Bryan Zaslow) shares, "I was extremely impressed by the amazing turnout and I especially want to thank the Retail Committee for their hard work and effort - Lauren Liebler, Shana Penczak, Jackie Conner, Jackie Rubenstein, Carrie Zwiebach, Ashley Kahn, and Nikki Belinkie."

We celebrated post-event with a bottle of champagne and greeted the newest member of our team, Dabney Mercer, Manager of Social and Media Relations. It was great to be able to convene outside the office and just enjoy each other's company. Senior Vice President Carrie Zwiebach remarked, "It was just wonderful to see how happy everyone was."

In a post-roundup this morning with Pax Zaslow and Harold Moscowitz (respectively quite irritated about NYC's restaurant dog policy) Shana Penczak reflected, "It was an incredibly successful event. Candidates met great clients, clients met great candidates, and we can't wait to see how much bigger and better our next event will be. Brian and Amanda at The Ainsworth were an amazing team to work with."
