At times it seems like everything Don Ressler touches turns to gold. Along with his business partner, Adam Goldenberg, he has been a part of several highly successful and innovative ventures. The two were some of the first to see the potential in e-commerce for apparel and accessories. As a co-CEO of both JustFab and Fabletics, Don Ressler is a huge presence in the e-commerce category.
JustFab is a highly successful venture. Named as one of Forbes Magazine’s unicorn companies, JustFab has over 35 million subscribers around the world. With a focus on women’s goods when it started, the company has expanded to serve men, as well. And this level of expansion is not unusual for a company Don Ressler and Goldenberg are involved in.
Ressler and Goldenberg’s most famous venture may be their time at Intermix Media. The parent company of the one-time dominant social network MySpace, the company was sold to News Corp. for over $600 million. Ressler has also had a hand in the founding of Brand Ideas, Alena Media, and other companies. He started the skincare brand Hydroderm. Over the duration of his career, Don Ressler has consistently broken new ground and driven sales.
Ressler’s experience as an entrepreneur has resulted in over $1 billion in sales over the course of his career. His is a truly unique success story. Whether it’s traditional media, social media, health and beauty, or apparel, no category intimidates him. He finds a knowledgeable partner, learns, and succeeds. This ability to see opportunity and seize it serves his business ventures well.
Along with his business partner, Adam Goldenberg, he has been able to create a highly successful corporation in JustFab. Ressler and Goldberg saw the opportunity for e-sales of apparel and accessories early. While many businesspeople were still shaking their heads and insisting consumers would want to try goods on in the store, Ressler and Goldenberg have helped revolutionize commerce at http://www.forbes.com/sites/tomiogeron/2011/09/21/former-intermix-coo-raises-33m-for-fashion-brand-justfabulous/#e8463767e63f.
As shoppers continue to move away from brick and mortar stores, it seems more growth for JustFab and Fabletics is inevitable. With Don Ressler continuing to mint unicorn after unicorn, the future of business looks bright. It will be intriguing to see what he comes up with next.
