A love for building brands has seen London-born Taymoor Atighetchi launch The Tab, a digital news platform, followed by the creation of Papier, a one of a kind fine stationery brand. Though you could say that he’s got his entrepreneurial hands constantly full, Taymoor’s ideal weekends include indulging in a good balance of food, art and time spent with friends.
CEO & Founder, Papier
Co-Founder, The Tab
Location: London, U.K.
In the world of print versus digital, British-Iranian Taymoor Atighetchi has been leaving his mark in both spheres. Taymoor co-founded The Tab, a youth news platform, at Cambridge University in 2009. The digital publication has served as a career launchpad for many young journalists and has since expanded to over 100 universities in the U.K., U.S. and Canada.
Taymoor took his love of building brands a step further when he launched Papier in 2015, merging one a kind designs with quality printing and premium paper. As inboxes fill and delayed responses proliferate, Papier aims to encourage individuals to connect with each other less digitally and more thoughtfully, with the brand’s collection of cards and invitations. Combining his love for tech, art and design, Taymoor’s on a mission to deliver beautifully designed personalized products on-demand.
As the owner and managing director of Jeeves of Belgravia, New York, Jerry Pozniak is the best in the business. Just another day in the office can find him either working on a project for the Louvre, ensuring the Victoria’s Secret angels are ready to take flight or dangling 30 feet above ground in the Lincoln Center. Taking all the excitement home from work, Jerry relaxes by flying his 2-seater plane.

There’s nothing quite like the satisfaction of being able to say that you’re the best at what you do. As the owner and managing director of Jeeves of Belgravia, New York, Jerry Pozniak is familiar with the feeling. Jeeves is the trusted destination for high end garment care.
Jerry has been called upon to work on projects for the Louvre, the Metropolitan Opera House and the Lincoln Center. His clients include no less than Vogue‘s Anna Wintour and a few angels – Victoria’s Secret angels that is. Victoria’s real secret is that each year, they host two back-to-back fashion shows in a day and Jerry, along with his team, are there to keep the angels’ wings (and knickers) immaculate and ready for the epic flight(s) down the runway.
