WhatWe Do

HELPING YOU GROW

We are a small team of experienced international retail executives who strive to help our clients deliver outstanding customer experiences by providing support from a retailers’ perspective. We passionately believe that retail success is driven through great customer experiences and we are committed to helping companies to put their customers first encouraging them to become fans and net promoters of the business

Our aims include driving sales growth through category development and operational excellence. Improving cash and growing sales faster than cost. Optimising the P&L by driving transformational cost reduction programmes. Helping individuals, and teams, to develop by focusing on value for money, efficiency and innovation.

We believe in winning by sharing our know-how and experiences with our clients, taking a modern flexible approach, and by continuously learning and breaking new ground. We help our clients to describe, achieve and deliver goals, often acting as a sounding board on ways to excite customers.

There are 4 pillars to our business

Consulting

We have expertise ready to help retailers improve the customer experience; whether it be strategy and planning, category management and private label development, to better and more efficient supply chain, or store operations and store design. We can also help suppliers better understand what the retailer needs and expects from them.

Interim

We are ready at the drop of a hat to parachute in and lead a team or a project within any retailing function. We are retail experts with a track record of operating at the top level in companies large and small. We are flexible and perceptive able to adjust to new environments and deliver results with energy and drive.

Products and Services

We bring innovation to the market by helping retailers source products and services that are ground breaking or difficult to find. This includes consumer food and non-food products, data and systems applications, digital marketing products, energy saving technology solutions, and more.

People Development

We help get the best out of people. We look at a business’ ability to deliver its goals with the existing workforce, including a structural review, team development, and recruitment support. We are happy to work with you and your teams on personal development planning, and individual coaching & mentoring.

Our experience

We have supported large multinational retail businesses to expand and build their know-how in Poland, Hungary, Czech and Slovak Republics, Turkey, South Korea, Taiwan, China, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia and USA.

In the UK we have held senior positions in some of the largest and most respected retail companies in the Grocery sector. We have also held board positions in sector leading retail businesses in Russia, Central Europe and USA steering new ventures through successful start-up and helping drive established businesses through their turnaround and development phase.

On the supply side we have a proven track record of success working with leading blue-chip manufacturers in the food and non-food markets helping develop their markets and bring new and innovative products to the shelf.

We bring customer focus to what we do whether it is in category and range development, private label and brand development, space management and merchandising, store layout and design, supply chain and store operations, or sales and marketing.

We are committed to building stronger working relationships within and across multifunctional teams, as well as externally between companies, ensuring alignment between ideas, ways of working, individuals, teams, and companies. We are flexible and adaptable and happy to operate at all levels within the business to put our broad and extensive retail experience to effective use. We are equally at home rolling up our sleeves and getting stuck in at the coal face as we are engaging with the strategic decision makers at the helm of a large, medium or small business.

What drives us consistently is our passion for retailing, our commitment to the customer, and our quest to help constantly improve businesses by adopting new technologies and ideas, by reducing costs, and by increasing sales and profits.
