Founder of Organizers Direct

At the young age of 17, Neil Balter founded California Closets® and with it, established a new industry – custom home organization. In just under a decade, Neil expanded the company to include more than 100 franchises across five continents, with annual sales in excess of $66 million. In 1990, just before his 30th birthday, Neil negotiated the multi-million dollar sale of the company to Williams-Sonoma, Inc.

The recipient of numerous prestigious professional awards, Neil’s innovation and business savvy have garnered recognition within the industry and beyond. Most recently, he was named a “2013 Market Leader” by Wood Products Magazine. Neil’s entrepreneurial endeavors have been profiled in more than 1000 media outlets, including The Wall Street Journal, Forbes Magazine, People Magazine and the Oprah Winfrey Show.

Organizers Direct is built on Neil’s well-practiced passion and know-how. Since its inception in 1995, Organizers Direct has selected only the most qualified partners to represent its comprehensive line of custom cabinetry and organization systems for closets, garages, pantries, home offices and wall beds.
