Patti Stanger

Patti Stanger (born May 31, 1961) is a Jewish-American matchmaker and television producer with her own Bravo TV show called The Millionaire Matchmaker. She is the founder and CEO of Millionaire's Club International Inc., a professional matchmaking service for millionaires. Adopted into a Jewish family, Patti Stanger grew up in Short Hills, New Jersey and graduated from Millburn High School. She now lives in Los Angeles, CA. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Miami in 1983. Prior to founding her business, Stanger worked as the Director of Marketing for Great Expectations. Stanger is a third-generation matchmaker. Stanger was introduced to the fashion industry by Janis Spindel, who had hired and scouted her at the age of 24 when looking to cast a part for a sitcom pilot. She worked for ten years in the fashion industry at Unionbay Sportswear, JouJou Jeans, and Saks Fifth Avenue. In 2000, Stanger stated that "successful men in the dating arena needed a private, exclusive club where they could come to find their beautiful and intelligent wives." In 2008, Stanger signed a deal to have her own reality show called Millionaire Matchmaker on the Bravo TV Network.
