“I will miss all of the wonderful clients I've met over the years. Sumo is like a baby to me that I've watched grow and develop over the years." Mr. Milligan is quite confident that the new owners will continue with the framework of hard work and ethics.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 13, 2013
Investors bought Sumo Lounge and are planning on growing the brand into numerous industries and have big future plans of growth. With an amazing creation story, Sumo Lounge has risen above and become one of the top bean bag brands, and has even been featured in Forbes.
The creator of Sumo Lounge, Andrew Milligan created Sumo Lounge out of nothing. At the beginning, he tirelessly searched through a list of Alexa’s top 10,000 websites and found the right people to send beanbags to. His quasi guerilla-marketing ploy worked and sales tripled month-to-month in 2006. Sumo Lounge finished the year at 800% growth.
In 2007 he expanded to the UK and 2008 into the US, Australia and New Zealand, and now has fourteen factories in seven countries. Sumo Lounge succeeded through Milligan’s marketing efforts.
Andrew Milligan has finalized the sale of my company Sumo Lounge. As the president and founder of Sumo Lounge, he expressed his feelings about the acquisition of his creation, “I will truly miss all of the wonderful clients I've met over the years. Sumo is like a baby to me that I've watched grow and develop over the years. I'm very proud of the company that I created and the way I've always interacted with my clients. ”
With several offers over the past several years to sell Sumo Lounge, Mr. Milligan always resisted because of the passion for the brand that he grew. Sumo Lounge is being acquired by a group of private investors who have already expanded into various industries.
Mr. Milligan is quite confident that the new owners will continue with the framework of hard work and ethics above all.
He has stayed on for the last few months to ensure a smooth transition. Because of this, Milligan is confident that operations will continue as normal. In the next few weeks, the new websites created by the new owners will begin to transition into new formats and the brand will be much more powerful and dynamic.
They already have started to plan to make many improvements in operations including customer service upgrades and additional services.
Mr. Milligan plans to move to USA next year, and will be taking a sabbatical and traveling around the world while remaining a consultant for the Sumo Brand.
