Julie Stern is the founder and President of Julie Stern’s Retail Roster. She has been in retail her entire career. She studied fashion merchandising and business at University of Delaware and began her career in A & S’s retail buying training program where she held various positions in buying and planning and store line. She then went into marketing and buying for accessories in the gift industry for a while and then returned to her retail roots as a buyer at Stern’s. Julie decided to use her passion for retail and use it in a different way and went into executive search for retail in 1997. After approximately 7 years, she then started up a retail division for legal recruitment firm and successfully built it from scratch and ran it for 10 years. She decided to use all of her knowledge from being in retail herself to starting and running a retail firm for someone else to start her own firm and that is how Julie Stern’s Retail Roster began. She wanted to be able to provide her clients and applicants with the experience and expertise and passion she had. We are now building a team of successful attentive recruiters that all adhere to the same professionalism and high standards that were set by Julie in order to provide a seamless and successful relationship with our clients and applicants for mutually beneficial working relationship for everyone.
