ZACHARY PRELL^‘05BUS^Founder of Zachary Prell
Zachary Prell’s (ʼ05BUS) successful fashion and lifestyle brand has everything the modern, stylish businessman needs. Being one himself, he’s made sure of it.
In a previous career, Prell was in finance, first as an investment banker at Credit Suisse and later helping startups secure investments at Polaris Partners. Frustrated with the sartorial selections that were available – the clothes weren’t quite appropriate for his various commitments or they were ill-fitting – he decided to create a solution himself and start his fashion startup from scratch.
Prell left finance and went to Columbia Business School with the intent of building the type of menswear brand that would work seamlessly in every part of a professional man’s life – from breakfast meetings through the work day and into the evening.
