Don Ressler’s Active Entrepreneurial And Management Career

 

 

Don Ressler is the co-owner of Techstyle Group which previously rebranded its name, from JustFab. JustFab, the now, Techstyle Group began operating after its establishment by Adam Goldenberg and Don Ressler in March 2010. The two entrepreneurs had shared a living room in their apartment and Manhattan before they decided to relocate to El Segundo to set up their business. The COO of Techstyle Group, Anton Von Rueden, revealed that the two CEOs chose the location for its convenient location next to an international airport, a beach and office space options that allowed for future expansions. Currently, the e-commerce business has an office covering 128,000 square feet in El Segundo.

 

 

Before spearheading JustFab, Don Ressler established some companies such as Brand and Alena media, FitnessHeaven.com, Intelligent Beauty and supervised the development and launch of the skin care product, Hydroderm.
