Shira Yoskovitch is the founder and CEO of Handled Concierge Services. Former senior executive, Shira has over 20 years of experience in operations, retail, and distribution, with a background in supply chain management. As a busy professional and caretaker, Shira found that she didn’t have enough time to juggle both responsibilities and often wished she could hire someone to do her shopping and running around for her. With a love for shopping and style, Shira launched Handled in June 2017 to address the gap in the retail and concierge markets.
How did you get started?
I’d been contemplating Handled for a few years already, but it was never the right time financially, relationship-wise, career wise, you name it. Then in summer of 2016, a close friend of mine asked me “So what’s the worst thing that could happen?”... and that was it. The next day I registered the company, and started calling all the people I could think of to ask for help.
What's the most exciting thing that’s happened since launching your company?
Being featured in the printed edition of the Globe’s Saturday style section. I’d been a devotee of it since my teens, and my mom and I used to read it together. It was pretty fab to see myself in there. .
