About Us

Steve Yacker

Co Founder/ Managing Partner & Principal

“My 30 year career includes senior positions at Gap, Club Monaco, French Connection, Michael Kors and Victorinox, Swiss Army. I have led Merchandising, Planning and Allocation, Store Operations, Creative Services, Account Services and E-Commerce teams. I have always aspired to have the best team in the building, on the block or in the mall ... for once that happens, all else is much easier and more enjoyable. I am a native of New York, and reside in lower Manhattan with my wife and 2 sons.

Marisa Dunn

Co Founder/ Managing Partner & Principal

I graduated from Seton Hall University with a BS in Psychology. I made the decision early on that I would find a career where I was helping others - just never knew in what capacity. Once I landed my first recruiting role, I knew I had found my calling. I connect with people for a living, I mean ... how amazing is that! I have always dreamt of running my own boutique search firm. After years in corporate america, I knew there was something missing for me. The stability was great, the learnings were incredible but it was time to listen to my heart and just go for it. Steve was always a mentor to me, the call I made when I felt "stuck" in my career, the text when I was having a bad day - so here we are, ready to create together.
