Kelleher International: The Matchmaking Service For the Uber-Rich

Amber Kelleher is the CEO of a major international matchmaking agency responsible for countless successful marriages and a rise in the niche singles match-making market. She is the CEO of the international matching company Kelleher International and a true romantic at heart, with a strong enthusiasm for people and love.


Under Amber’s leadership, Kelleher International is the market leader in the thriving singles sector and is responsible for thousands of marriages, with 87% of their clients going on to have children or enter into committed relationships. Amber’s straightforward style of listening and posing questions to get to the heart of each individual is made possible by her understanding of human relationships and a healthy dose of intuition.

Matchmaking business industry

The matchmaking business no longer resembles Yente from “Fiddler on the Roof,” and neither is it like Sima from Netflix’s “Indian Matchmaking.” Today’s matchmaking environment is a highly complex, technologically advanced, frequently outrageously expensive luxury service, there are algorithms to assess what opener you’re most likely to respond favorably to! 


Additionally, these countless matching businesses view themselves as an outsourced service, much as how one may outsource their taxes to an accountant. Of course, you still have to go on the dates yourself, but you don’t have to deal with the arduous and uncomfortable pre-show conversation – at a cost.

Perks of Kelleher International

Kelleher International was formed in 1986 by Jill Kelleher-Andrews. It has developed into the biggest privately held matchmaking business in the nation and is now headed by her daughter Amber, a former Baywatch and Melrose Place actress. Its typical client is described as “clever, successful, and elegant” by the upscale firm. 


Given that the service begins at $15,000 a year for limitless matches in one city, “wealthy” should also be a given. Clients will have to pay an additional $5,000 to add a second city. You can upgrade to an international search and one-on-one meetings with Jill and Amber Kelleher-Andrews by becoming a member of the CEO club, which costs upwards of $150,000 a year. The hitch is that you have to pay additional “success fees” if you decide to get married or commit to a long-term relationship with your match.

Big personas

Kelleher International’s books feature some of the industry’s biggest personas; however, the company merely requests that applicants be enthusiastic and successful in what they do in order to be accepted.


Kelleher International’s original 20 years were devoted to San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York, which kept the business together during that time. The company has increased its efforts to expand, though, and in recent years has expanded its service areas to include both the east and west coasts of the United States and Europe.


Kelleher-Andrews claims that she was encouraged to believe that Europeans preferred blind one-on-one dates to dating in close-knit groups and that, for this reason, the region would be a difficult nut to crack. She is speaking about the contrasts between European and American clientele. However, having established a sizable portion of its operations in London, Kelleher-Andrews has discovered that this is not the case and that it is actually challenging to distinguish between cross-Atlantic rivals.
