by Harry Sheff

Steve SaftStephen Saft, former chief executive of men’s outerwear manufacturer Jacob Siegel, has acquired the executive search firm The Spinrad Group.

The Spinrad Group, formerly known as Kenn Spinrad Company, specializes in recruiting for the apparel, textile, and sewn products industries, working with every aspect from top executives to designers and production managers. The Philadelphia company was founded in 1967.

“After a lifetime in the apparel business, the depth of my personal experience—locally, nationally, and internationally—brings both hands-on and global knowledge to every client and every candidate,” commented Sadft. “I have worked side-by-side with sewing machine operators and mechanics, as well as titans of industry, enjoying wonderful relationships with every one of them. I plan to bring all of that experience to each new relationship, researching and searching for the perfect match for employer and employee.”

Saft says that the Spinrad offices will stay in Philadelphia, but his recruiting efforts will be worldwide.
