Who we are.

Delivering talent for over 25 years

Jannine Abadi & Associates is a boutique executive search firm that specializes in Fashion Apparel & Accessories for wholesale, retail and ecommerce. Our professional team creates comprehensive sourcing strategies to identify, attract and close top talent.


We specialize in mid to senior level positions with an unparalleled ability to match the ideal candidate with the position. The team has developed an extensive network of management and creative talent that serve as insiders to the fashion industry and future fashion leaders.


Having experience in both retail and wholesale we offer a deep understanding of our clients unique business requirements. We have earned the trust of our clients and candidates through honest communication and consistent follow through. The key to our success is working closely with the hiring managers within organizations to completely understand the specific needs both culturally and intellectually.

why we do it better

WHAT MAKES US SUCCESSFUL? Between Jannine and the members of our team, we have a vast amount of experience in both the retail and wholesale landscape. We have either been in the role of the candidates or managed them. Having been in the business ourselves we like to think we have an edge over our competition.

We take our role very seriously and work very hard to make sure our clients consider us as a part of their HR team. We take the time to learn about the company culture and the hiring manager’s style of management to ensure we place a perfect fit for both the client and the   candidate.

What makes us different.

Our approach is anything but a numbers game

Our unique services are a cost-effective and efficient alternative for companies who are trying to fill positions themselves, or who have had less than complete success with other search firms.

 We know how many hours goes into search, hiring, and onboarding a candidate, as well   as the financial ramifications to the company when the wrong candidate has been hired. We know how valuable your time is, and for us its not a numbers game. We do not inundate you with multiple resumes, rather we do all the screening and send you only the top few qualified candidates.
