St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) February 28, 2014
Ron Otto, President of National Sales Solutions, and Angie Echele, President of Retail Smarter, presented at two conferences hosted by ECRM in Cannes, France earlier this month. Mr. Otto and Ms. Echele presented “A Practical Handbook for Launching New Products in the U.S.” for attendees of the European Beauty and Personal Care event and the European Health Care, Vitamin, Diet & Nutrition event. Both conferences were held at the Intercontinental Carlton in Cannes, France in February.
ECRM (Efficient Collaborative Retail Marketing) provides business solutions to the retail industry by integrating process, vision and technology to help buyers and manufacturers improve sales, reduce expenses and go to market faster and more efficiently.
Mr. Otto and Ms. Echele discussed U.S. market opportunity, entry methods, cultural differences and the successful products to market process. Mr. Otto said, “I am honored that ECRM asked me to speak at this event. I hope we inspired a few great companies to share their products with American consumers.”
Mr. Otto and Ms. Echele, both veterans of global consumer packaged goods companies, now focus on helping small and medium-sized brands. Through a strategic alliance, Mr. Otto’s National Sales Solutions (NSS) handles sales management, while Ms. Echele’s Retail Smarter specializes in marketing and supply chain. In recent years, the pair have helped several brands enter the U.S. Echele asserts that recent economic growth and the highest Consumer Confidence Level in six years make the U.S. an attractive growth prospect. She says, “American retailers and shoppers want innovative products to help them be healthy, look better and feel better.”
