“At the core of it, I help great guys look good,” says Patrick Kenger, founder of Pivot. Designed exclusively for men, the consultancy focuses on three areas—styling, grooming and social—to help its clients look and feel their best. “For guys, style and grooming aren’t something we talk about over beers,” he explains. “We all want to look good, but some guys have difficulty articulating that and forming a direction with their style. I’m just a normal guy who has a passion and education for this stuff. Guys find comfort in that. I help make men feel comfortable in their appearance and show them that it’s really not that difficult once you have the right information.”
