John Jonas founded The Jonas Group, a leading retained fashion executive search firm, in 2001. With 70 percent of its work in high-level footwear and accessories searches, The Jonas Group has made important placements across senior functional areas for many prominent footwear companies. Mr. Jonas grew up in New York City and received his B.A. from Brown University. His business education included working for his father, who was Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the publicly traded, 600-location Lechter’s Housewares. While there, Mr. Jonas gained experience and knowledge in all functional areas of retail from stores to merchandising, marketing, e‑commerce, finance, board of directors meetings, and more, which helped him understand these roles and prepared him to find ideal individuals to fit each client’s needs. In addition to supporting The Two Ten Foundation, FFANY, and Soles4Souls, Mr. Jonas has always been actively and charitably involved with bettering the lives of disadvantaged inner city youth.
