Being in the heart of Manhattan affords The Jonas Group the ideal opportunity to be right in the middle of the Fashion Capital of the World. Many of our clients have offices and Flagship Stores here and others come through New York City very frequently. We are able to go into their stores, meet them in their showrooms, or have them visit our offices when they are in town. We are therefore perfectly positioned to be completely on top of what is happening in the world of Fashion and affect it in a powerful way.

While The Jonas Group is a privately held Boutique firm, we are also an affiliate of Management Recruiters International Network which is comprised of over 1100 offices worldwide. This allows us to partner with sister offices around the globe to best serve our clients. We have leveraged the best of Management Recruiters’ 40 years of best practices and enhanced that approach to create our own personalized, best in class Retail/ Wholesale Fashion Executive Search Firm. The Jonas Group maintains state-of-the-art technology which allows us to connect prospective personnel to our clients throughout the world.
