Over the course of her career, Emily Holmes Hahn has placed dozens of couples into lasting relationships, often leading to marriage. With a cosmopolitan network and an innate way of connecting with friends and strangers alike, she assists each client step-by-step through the most important “headhunt” of their lives.
Before discovering her passion for matchmaking, Emily lived for 3 years in Paris working for Ralph Lauren and pursuing graduate studies at La Sorbonne, all the while perfecting her je ne sais quoi. Her educational background also includes a double bachelor’s degree from NYU’s Tisch School for the Arts and College of Arts and Sciences.
Emily enjoys green juice and champagne (often at the same time) and is a firm believer that the right dress can change your life. Traveling, cycling, yoga and theater-going provide balance to her busy schedule. Emily and her fiancé reside in Tribeca and split their time between the city and their home in East Hampton.

Inspired and driven by her true love of bringing people together, Hannah’s days are spent interviewing prospective clients, helping them to define their core values and relationship goals, and finally tailoring membership packages to fit their individual needs. In her free time, Hannah enjoys escaping the city for ski weekends (water or snow!), and jogging in Central Park.
