The Nanny Authority is Born
As "The Nanny Authority", Cliff saw the growing need and demand for nanny services for families other than just Pavillion Agency's high-profile clientele, and along with his brother Keith, opened The Nanny Authority in 1997 to provide reasonably priced quality nanny services to all families throughout the United States.

This comes with a lifetime of devotion to serving the needs of his patrons. Cliff is just as comfortable and knowledgeable with The Nanny Authority clientele, and truly enjoys helping all families in their search for their ideal nanny.
After completing his education at Queens College in 1979 and certain of his strong desire to work with people, Keith decided to join the family business, Pavillion Agency. He took to the business immediately. In his first several years he primarily worked with clients in need of nannies and housekeepers. He quickly realized how important it was to maintain and build upon the already existing solid reputation the Pavillion Agency enjoyed, paying careful attention to, and being extremely selective with, the variety of staff he represented. This was the backbone for the Pavillion Agency becoming "The Leader in the Field of Personal Service."
For the past several years Keith has focused primarily on placing chauffeurs, chefs, butlers, housemen, house-managers and caretakers. He has specifically developed an enormous following and excellent reputation in the placement of corporate chauffeurs. He provides chauffeurs for the most influential C.E.O.'s, board Chairmen, and other senior level executives in the world. Keith makes more placements in this area than any other firm in the United States. He 's known as New York's premier source for corporate executive chauffeurs. Over the past few years he has also developed a strong following providing trained private chefs for the most prominent families in the New York area. The one aspect of this business Keith enjoys most is the gratification he feels when helping people.
"The greatest feeling in the world is when an applicant of mine calls to say thanks."
An avid golfer and fish enthusiast, Keith resides in New Jersey with his beautiful wife and two terrific children.
Pat resides in Northern New Jersey as a single mother of six. She has seen firsthand what it takes to bring a child from infancy to adulthood. After graduating from college where she studied English and business communications, Pat secured a position with a major pharmaceutical firm in their personnel department. Because of her people and language skills, within a short time, Pat was the assistant to the Director of Personnel recruiting, interviewing and hiring non-exempt employees on her own.
Pat then married and her children, five boys and a girl, were born in rapid succession. She also had a teenage brother-in-law living with her. Pat’s husband was in graduate school at that time, therefore, she had to wear many hats and be able to juggle an unbelievably busy schedule in order to manage the household.
Entering the Field of Nanny Placement Services
By the time all of the children were in school, Pat returned to the work force as a single parent determined to make a place for herself as a successful businesswoman. Knowing that her niche is working directly with people, Pat seized an opportunity to join a young and up-and-coming advertising firm where outside sales afforded her flexible hours that fit in with the kids' schedules. Working her way up in the organization, she realized the great need for working mothers to obtain quality childcare.
Because of the numerous travel demands involved with a sales position, Pat decided to look in another direction. When a job opening came to her attention at a nationwide nanny placement service, she felt she would be ideal for the position. After all, she had been in every working and non-working mothers shoes!
Bringing Her Vast Nanny Service Experiences to The Nanny Authority
Because of her vast experience in the nanny services industry and the manner in which she naturally relates to people, Pat was recruited by Pavillion Agency to supervise the day to day operation of The Nanny Authority. Here she uses her knowledge of individual personalities as well as the field of personal service to properly identify the right combination for each family and nanny. With over 20 years experience in the nanny business, you won’t find anyone with more nanny and family matching expertise to help guide you effortlessly through what can be a difficult and complicated process. Our goal at The Nanny Authority is to make the nanny placement process as smooth and hassle-free as possible.
