As a boutique broker we differ from large broker companies in some significant ways. Managing a small number of selected brands, we stay in close communication and feedback loop with our clients. The companies we work with often feel that we are a direct extension of their sales and marketing teams.
With 100% focus on each brand, MBA level planning, the effective use of 80/20 rule and applying the six core momentum strategies, we have a strong record of achieving 50-345% growth for our brands over 1-3 years.
