  • Amy Benarek

    Operations Leader | Strategic Transformation and Implementation Expert

    Ascena

    "I had the pleasure of working with Ilka and her team on multiple projects. Every project came in with a clear strategy, on time, on budget, and truly set up for continuous success. Her ability to understand the magnitude of work across all brands, departments, and systems was amazing. She is a true professional who understands the complexities of business transformation. Ilka and her team always exceeded my expectations. I recommend her to anyone needing a trusted partner to implement new strategies."

  • Regina Reyes

    Vice President Omni Planning

    EILEEN FISHER, Inc.

    “I think today… First of all, there are a lot of difficult things about working in retail. But for me, I think the most difficult thing is really keeping the customer at the forefront of everything you do. When Jordan Alliance started helping us to optimize our product lifecycle, I felt really comfortable and confident that they would help us bring the outside in. 

     

    My big takeaway in working with Jordan Alliance Group was being able to look at the product lifecycle from end-to-end and really understanding how our organizational design, our roles and responsibilities, and certain functional accountability really needed to come into the picture."

  • Adrienne Shelton

    Sr. Vice President | GMM

    Ascena

    “The most challenging thing about working in retail is, the space is starting to get very, very crowded. So when Jordan Alliance Group came in, what we started feeling was the sense of support. It was really a soup-to-nuts, beginning to end support, starting with the fact-finding. 

     

    Really, they didn’t treat it as a cookie-cutter approach. It was much more customized to our brand and our specific needs. 

     

    Working with Jordan Alliance Group had a huge impact on our bottom line."

    "It was my pleasure to work with Ilka and her talented team while revising our Product Lifecycle Calendar. JAG helped drive the complex process, aligning the many stakeholders and numerous competing priorities, all with a clear eye on arriving at an effective, yet flexible, long-term product.

     

    JAG’s team of experts brought a wide variety of expertise to this challenging project, guided us with empathy, and gave us confidence that we could deliver a solution that served the needs of the business."

  • Lori Knight

    PMO Director,

    PLM + Creative Technology

    The Children's Place 

    "Jordan Alliance Group has assembled a talented team of industry experts that bring years of hands-on apparel retail experience to each project and endeavor.   I have known and respected the JAG team for many years, and recently had the pleasure of establishing a new business relationship with JAG.  I engaged JAG when the corporation was seeking apparel specific experience to support a technology transformation effort.  We were thrilled that Gina Moore-Herring was available to join our team and support the project.  We appreciate her commitment, passion, knowledge, and professionalism.  We are thankful for the partnership in getting the project back on track.  We look forward to the continued partnership with Gina and the JAG team!"

  • Tracy Townsend Traver

    Senior Vice President,

    Design, Product Development, Trend, Fashion Accessories & Jewelry at Chico's

    "I have great respect for Ilka as a leader as well as a change agent who has demonstrated the ability to successfully navigate all levels of leadership in an organization keeping everyone focused on delivering target results."

  • Aris Lallas

    Senior Vice President,

    Design, Trend & Concept, R & D at White House Black Market

    "Had the opportunity to work with Ilka while at White House Black Market, where she led the Business Process Management (BPM) team. 

     

    In the time we worked together we collaborated on the development and implementation of a complex, restructuring of the Product Life Cycle (PLC) process: a priority initiative for the organization. I found Ilka to be a very committed, diligent and steadfast person who demonstrated a high level of courage and conviction to implement change. She faced many challenges throughout the process, but her determination, focus and drive to the completion of the process implementation was unwavering. "

     

    Ilka's dedication and drive are what make her an asset and a valued partner in navigating complex challenges."

  • Gurdip Singh

    Partner at DecisionGPS, LLC

    "Ilka led the business process re-engineering and change management effort associated with changing the core operating model at Chico's viz. floor-set frequency and assortment breadth changes driven by desirable customer shopping behavior across channels.

     

    My predictive data analytics team and I collaborated with Ilka, her team and the business leaders in the brands - to discover the data-driven insights to drive the change in design, sourcing & buying behaviors. Not only did Ilka lead the engagement on a day-to-day basis, but she also helped guide the interactions with the Brand Presidents and the executive leadership team to ensure that the message was to the point, and actionable - so that it could add immediate value to the business. 

     

    I strongly recommend Ilka, for she brings a breadth of knowledge, a passion to deliver value, and an eye for detail, that makes her an effective leader and change agent in complex corporate environments."
