New Leadership at In Focus Brands and Call for New Board Members

As In Focus Brands continues to consolidate operations and leadership teams during their extensive merged buyout, new board members are being recruited while a new COO is named.

New York, NY, October 23, 2018 --( Jill Daye, the long tenured Director of Operations, has been promoted to COO of the portfolio firm. Ms. Daye was the first hire of Founder Robert Manasier when In Focus Brands was started and continues to travel the globe overseeing their operational teams.

Jill Daye discusses the new position: “As we continue to consolidate operations across our portfolio and between our merging entities, it became apparent that we needed someone core to our culture, business philosophy and with an intimate understanding of our strategies and playbooks built by Bob (Manasier). The great news is even during these developing business times for us and without much media presence, our portfolio revenue numbers have risen 44% each of the last 3 quarters which is what matters to our clients, stakeholders, staff and funders.”

Almost a year into the merger buyout, In Focus Brands, the international firm that has launched 143 companies and in the last 3 years brought 3 firms from launch to exit, continues to consolidate redundant systems and operations across their portfolio of firms. The combined portfolio is beginning to interview potential new board members. There has always been two ways to get onto the board and in line for partner- have an active book of business or have access to funding. This clear path has been core to the company's proprietary system approach to commercialized acceleration. The unique IFB Way (In Focus Brands) is strategy coupled with in house operational teams tied to funding to accomplish accelerated execution for maximum business result. The firm's vetting systems have been central to a 100% retention of staff and a key to their extensive history of startup success.

As the company expands their reach, adds and/or re-evaluates the service offerings and delivery systems, the partner search is an opportunity to further scale the explosive growth.

Up next for the In Focus Brands’ Team, launching new regional collaborations for innovation and entrepreneurship in Texas and Illinois; design a new seed fund (their 3rd fund) and assist a client-partner in their initial public offering.
