Don Ressler is a serial CEO and entrepreneur. As the founder, he has created multiple successful businesses and brands and he shows no signs of slowing down. Recently, his companies have been valued at excellent rates and his success continues to inspire others in the same industry.
JustFab, one of the companies that Ressler has founded, just reached an impressive valuation of $1 billion. That’s almost unheard of outside of the corners of Silicon Valley. Typically, these companies don’t see growth like that unless they are a piece of software or app. However, Ressler has a keen sense of vision for markets and where they are headed. This allows him to position himself with the advantage and overcome competitors. This vision along with his work ethic and intellectual prowess make him on the best CEOs the world has ever seen.
He consistently builds businesses and is able to attract the right funding for them to work. This is a rare skill set but one he has acquired through his experience as a marketing and business leader. In fact, Ressler built his own company from scratch and now he gets to run an international organization with many companies to his name.
He didn’t always start having Kimora Lee Simmons and Kate Hudson as celebrity endorsement for his brands though. Fabletics and JustFab took a while to build, and a lot of startup capital, which totals in the hundreds of millions of dollars. It was with this money he was able to continue the success he sees today. But Ressler had to create his own company first called FitnessHeaven.com which he sold. Then, he teamed up his partners and sold his company. This allowed him to see new market opportunities that he capitalized on, such as performance marketing. The idea came to him while he and his team at Alena Media where all brainstorming together. They took two weeks, but finally Ressler realized they needed to create company around beauty and fashion. It began an e-commerce empire that exists today.
When it comes to Don Ressler, one thing is certain: he knows how to run a business. He wants to continue to improve his products and offerings at every opportunity. This is apparent in the fact they have been able to achieve incredible results and grow at an impressive pace. Time will tell, but it looks like this CEO is on top for right now.
