JBCSpotlight: Meet Claudia

Claudia FordClaudia Ford

Title: National Director of Sales

Location: NYC

Favorite designer/artist: DVF and Willem de Kooning

Celebrity crush: Bradley Cooper

Favorite place in NYC: Central Park in the very early morning. Dogs are allowed to run free, off leash. Their sheer joy is extraordinary.

Interview horror story: My own? Probably having to use the lady’s room and not finding a comfortable break in the conversation to excuse myself. I continued the meeting for an addt’l two hours, dying inside!

Best interview tip: Remain engaged/energized throughout your meeting, mirror body language whenever possible, be gracious and send a hand written thank you note…a dying art!!!

Favorite accessory: Diamond studs – timeless.

If I could be an animal I would be… A Best in Show dog. Beautiful and pampered around the clock, darling!

Dream vacation: Honeymooning in Bora Bora was pretty dreamy, but next on the list would be driving through the South of France and staying at quaint little B&B’s along the way. Vineyard hopping is a must, of course!

Sweet or salty: Salty.

In my spare time I… Renovate our home, cook up a storm, day hike with our dog, Murphy.

Fashion or Beauty Tip: Accentuate your best qualities with class, drink tons of water, repeat!

Favorite item in my closet: Vintage 1920’s beaded clutch, designer unknown.

Restaurant I would recommend: Lupa

Favorite music artist/band: Depends on my mood, I am listening to Neil Young right now…but I could have Jay-Z on repeat tomorrow.

Favorite quote: “Be the change you want to see.”
