Patti Stanger CEO
Patti Stanger founded Millionaire's Club International, in January 2000. Ms. Stanger, the club's owner, is the former Director of Marketing for Great Expectations (the largest and oldest dating service in the United States), as well as an experienced third-generation matchmaker. She is the star and executive producer of her own television show, the wildly successful The Millionaire Matchmaker, on Bravo. In its first season, the show accumulated record breaking viewership and captured a worldwide following for Patti. The Millionaire Matchmaker has instigated requests for her to appear on almost every major talk, news and entertainment show on television, radio and the internet. Known for her straight-forward approach and razor sharp wit and tongue, Patti has been featured in countless magazines, newspapers and blogs. She is also the author of the bestselling book, “Become Your Own Matchmaker: 8 Easy Steps for Attracting Your Perfect Mate”, released by Simon & Schuster (now available in paperback!) and the host of the hit XM Radio show “P.S. I Love You” co- hosted by Destin Pfaff. Patti is the star of the Lionsgate film "Married in a Year" and headed the campaigns for both 1800-Flowers and Sensa Weight loss.
Patti had been receiving worldwide kudos long before her show aired and her book was published. A third generation matchmaker, she founded the Millionaire’s Club in January of 2000 after serving five years as the Director of Marketing/Special Events for Great Expectations (the oldest and largest dating service in the U.S.) and working for ten years in the fashion industry for such well-known companies as Union Bay Sportswear, JouJou Jeans,and Saks Fifth Avenue. Patti has dealt with thousands of couples, and helped them find their true loves. Top celebrities and professional athletes, as well as Fortune 500 business moguls and the guys next door have put dazzling diamond rings on the fingers of Patti’s female clients.
Ms. Stanger felt that successful men in the dating arena needed a private, exclusive club where they could come to find their beautiful and intelligent wives. Introduction services in the new millennium were, after all, no longer only for the dateless and desperate, and were becoming far more acceptable and mainstream. Patti realized that busy, upscale men simply didn't have the time to go looking for a relationship, weren't meeting the kind of women that they dreamed about, or were looking for a certain 'type' that they couldn't find. These men needed a service where they could be introduced to exceptionally beautiful women in a relaxing, discreet and confidential manner. She also saw that, in the dating service industry, the odds of a beautiful woman joining a premier dating service on her own were very low so she set out to recruit women from across the country and around the world through advertisements, magazine articles, dating scouts, radio and television appearances and shows – such as Bravo’s hit reality series The Millionaire Matchmaker – now in its sixth season.
Millionaire's Club International currently has over 30,000 women available for its members to date, and continues to sign up new ladies each and every day. The service is FREE to women; each woman is thoroughly screened, and receives a comprehensive personal evaluation before she is introduced to a male member. The Millionaire's Club is an international matchmaking service that caters to male and female members all around the globe.
Millionaire's Clubs contemporary approach sets it apart from those of traditional matchmakers. In addition to offering a complimentary membership to women, the club works closely with leading psychologists, relationship counselors, date coaches, hypnotherapists and image consultants, as well as with a variety of top-notch personal trainers, plastic surgeons, dentists and hairstylists. Ms. Stanger believes if a man wants to woo and win a "Perfect 10" female, he must himself become a "Perfect 10" both internally and externally in order to reach his objective.
The Millionaire's Club works with every member on an individual basis. It coaches the particular member through each stage of the dating and mating process, from the initial meeting through the marriage proposal, by providing them with highly tailored feedback every step of the way. Most clubs only give their members one date per month, but the Millionaire's Club offers them as many dates as they wish, and encourages them to date a variety before selecting "the one." Ms. Stanger and her HIGHLY TRAINED STAFF (including her COO – Destin Pfaff, VP of Matching – Rachel Federoff) match every member according to their exact preferences and requirements, and follows up with each one on a regular basis. Every member also receives a special customer service number so that he can ask questions and solicit that important post-date feedback. As one member of Millionaire's Club put it, "Patti and her staff know just what men want when it comes to dating, and provides them with exactly what they are looking for."
Millionaire's Club is not a matchmaking service that provides its elite members with "gold diggers." Women are thoroughly screened and must sign paperwork that penalizes if they ask for any type of financial compensation. Since Millionaire’s Club has been open, there has never been a "gold digger" to date. They seek an old-fashioned, traditional relationship where the woman has the option of staying home and raising the children while her husband pursues his career. Based on the present state of the economy, it usually takes two incomes to make ends meet. This has become the norm, a big change from the way it was in previous generations. No matter how much money a man has, however, nothing can replace chemistry. The Millionaire's Club knows that chemistry is everything, which is why catering to its members’ precise standards remains its top priority.
Millionaire’s Club International has offices in the US, UK and Canada. It is known as the one stop shopping resource for all your dating needs – offering very personalized plans and celebrated customer service – with a staff on call seven days a week. Millionaire’s Club has a an extremely high success rate.
