The Founders

The most exciting part of the trajectory here at Reunited Clothing is our ability to work and build as a cohesive team and family. When you work as “one” it creates such a powerful and successful force that it becomes an incredible environment to work in. This was an important goal for the founding partners when we started the company. Here’s a little bit more about the 4 partners that make up REUNITED CLOTHING.

 

JERRY FINESTONE- President of Global Operations

Jerry’s long term relationships with factories overseas have been critical to the amazing factory and sourcing matrix that Reunited Clothing has built over the past 6 years.

“It’s very rare for a startup company like ours to compete against the world’s largest importers and be successful within a short period of time yet fortunately we’ve been able to accomplish that.”

HILDA BATAYNEH- Executive Creative Director

Hilda Batayneh is our Executive Creative Director who oversees design, trend, marketing and new collaborations. During her 20 year career in the industry, Hilda has worked with most major retailers and has been able to successfully forecast and reinterpret the key trends and dial into the DNA of each of the accounts we service at Reunited Clothing.

“What we do here is the real business of fashion, there is a strategic element involved. It’s the wearable and attainable fashion , the real fashion that people end up buying and wearing whether out of necessity or want.  What I love is being able to design for every demographic and every price point.  It’s extremely gratifying and when the customer loves it I feel extremely rewarded in the efforts of myself and the talented creative team that I lead.”

DONALD KESSELMANPresident & CEO

Donald Kesselman is our president & CEO with over 50 years of experience in the industry. Donald brings a perspective and an energy to the company that has helped Reunited Clothing become the success that it is.

“What inspires me is being able to build a startup company in today’s competitive environment within the fashion and apparel industry. To have been able to achieve our vendor numbers, relationship and growth would have been viewed as almost impossible and yet we’ve been extremely successful.”

JEFFREY SHERMAN- President of Sales And Production

Jeff’s relationship and experience have helped create an amazing portfolio of accounts that Reunited Clothing services.

“My philosophy has always been to make sure that the customer feels they are the most important thing to us. Not in just words but in actions. I want them to know that whatever it takes we will help to make them successful. Whatever aspect of their business whether, design, cost, delivery and quality we are there to service them at the highest level. At the end of the day I want them to know that their trust in me and my company means everything to me and that we will do everything in our power to come through for them.”
