Don Ressler is a passionate man. He is passionate about his business pursuits, he is passionate about his charitable work, and he is passionate about fitness and fashion. It was Ressler’s love of the last two and his devotion to the first that led to his position as CEO of Fabletics and being Co-CEO of JustFab, inc. From the success of these endeavors, he has been able to do more of his passion for charity work and helping others than he could have ever thought possible.
When Don Ressler started mapping out his plan for Fabletics with business partner Adam Goldenberg he had a simple idea in mind, create a line of great clothing that was fashion forward and fit into the active fitness lifestyle that many Americans pursue today. He knew that people wanted to be able to live their everyday lives in clothes that not only looked great, but were comfortable and functional in today’s fast paced and highly active world.
Ressler founded his first startup FitnessHeaven.com and turned it into a success that attracted the purchase of the company by intermix media in 2001. It was there that he met Adam Goldenberg and a friendship soon developed into a partnership that has proven to be very successful for them both. Ressler has now been the weight behind a great many startups including Fabletics and JustFab among others. Most of these endeavors have come out of the incubator that the two men formed after a brainstorming session held in Goldenberg’s living room. That session gave birth to Brand Ideas, which would later become the behemoth known today as Intelligent Beauty.
The first child to be born from their incubator was DERMSTORE a skin care brand, which was followed two years later by the now legendary weight loss brand SENSA. Don Ressler with Goldenberg at his side, have launched many more successful endeavors since those early days. Among the most well known of these further endeavors is JustFab which has expanded into FabKids, FabShoes and now with the partnership of Kate Hudson Fabletics. Ressler has been behind the wheel the entire time and has steered his and Goldenberg’s concept of fashion forward clothing and sensible skin care into a highly profitable subscription based model that provides service to millions of customers monthly all over the world.
On a personal side, Ressler has also found a way to bring his unique touch for success to philanthropic activities. He has been active in many non-profits along with his wife. Ressler believes that success and giving back go hand in hand. He has used the power of his connections in the business world to reach out to many community improvement partners to help make the world a better place for all.
