Recommendations for Karin Jeske, Owner, StyleData

 

Daniel Cotlar
Karin worked directly for Daniel in his role as
CMO, Blinds.com, a division of The Home Depot
Karin is a one-in-a-million merchandising executive. She drives the strategy, has a deep and solid grasp of the fundamental 'math' of this role, and is perfectly comfortable getting intricately into the detail needed to succeed (even if that means a week of poring through disparate data sources to formulate the story). Over the 5 years I was fortunate to work with her, she drove the creation of a highly successful private label line, raised our margins considerably, and helped form the Home Depot's product line. But most important to me is that I can completely rely on her and trust her - given her insistence on communicating factually and speaking up where needed about what's going well or poorly, whether it's formally within her responsibility or not. She's a tremendous asset to our company!

She has a rare blend of high quality analytic skills AND a creative fashion sense needed for the job. She is results oriented, hardworking, and passionate about winning. During our time together, Karin completely refreshed the 3 Day product line, redesigning existing products and introducing new products.

Bev-Sue Powers

Karin repeatedly was given challenging assignments broader than her official role.  Every time she went above and beyond, with a great attitude, diligence, and professionalism.  Karin also brought a spirit of laughter and sense of play to the table, which made it very fun to work with her!  I'd be delighted if our paths crossed again.
