Adam Goldenberg’s Journey in Establishing JustFab

Adam Goldberg and Don Ressler are the Chief Executive Officers and Co-founder of JustFab. Adam, since 2004, has been in Brentwood Cosmetics, LLC. He, together with his colleagues know how to spot a trend, and from it get to develop a brand that leads the fashion industry.

He quit his high school studies to join Intermix, where he acted as the Strategic Planning Vice President. By the time he was 20, Adam Goldenberg had climbed through the ranks to be the CEO and became the youngest CEO of a company that is publicly traded.

Working at Intermix led him to encounter with Don, a brand building specialist and entrepreneur.

The two developed a friendship, and in 2005 after Intermix had been sold to New Corporation, they started their company on businessoffashion.com
. They created Intelligent Beauty in 2006; an e-commerce platform for brand incubation. This was as a result of a brainstorming session at Goldenberg’s living room. Adam Goldenberg successfully managed to create several brands and became market leaders in health and beauty products through the company.

Their first creation was the online marketplace for cosmetics and skincare. After two years, they launched SENSA; a weight-loss system that had Dr. Alan Hirsh being brought on board to help in product development, and the founder of Intermix Brett Brewer as the CEO. The two systems became highly profitable. They managed to secure $43 million funding in 2008 from Technology Crossover Ventures.
