Dina Reis has had a passion for journalism since she was a child. In 1985, she began her journey, working for the Jerusalem Post in Israel and was selected to cover the Maccabiah Games (Jewish Olympics). The experience inspired Reis to travel and she was exposed to historic architecture, fashion, museums and the artists who participate in these fields. Reis began to collect art in earnest and develop relationships with young artists in 1987. She collected decorative arts, textiles, historically important jewelry, couture clothes (which she co-designed) and eventually she procured an extensive collection of fine art. Her career included working with the Egyptian government to redesign 156 Omar Effendi stores and successfully increase their retail numbers.
Reis has been successful in buying excess inventory from manufacturers, for purposes of sampling, re-selling and redistribution. Reis Holdings invests in realestate and has special expertise and a niche in historical renovation projects.
Driven by her passion for the arts and business, Dina Reis continues to travel across the globe to attend furniture design shows, art and film openings, and fashion design shows, where she patrons, nurtures and funds new designers with the goal to successfully bring them to point of sale.

She opened and reinforced business relationships in up to 6000 new doors for the brand in just 6 months, facilitating a public offering for the brand. Reis’s interest in architecture led to projects to restore landmark buildings. She restored a Victorian home originally owned by Scott Macaye, president of New York Railroad, a Georgian Renaissance home designed by architect, Charles Gilbert, commissioned by Charles Vale and she is currently restoring an 800-year old residence and commercial building in Old Jaffe, Israel, which was acquired from the Catholic Church.

Dina Reis hopes that through her own difficult trials,tribulations, and personal life journey, she can be of service to others and embody the lesson that has meant so much to her overtime and all through her life; we all fall, but we can learn from those falls, be better for them, stronger and more compassionate because of them.
Dina Reis’s mantra and one she wishes to impart to her readers through inspirational stories is “be brave, walk into the eye of the storm, face what lies within, understand and transform.”
