Over the last 20 years we have successfully helped over 20 North American automotive companies with their sales, HR, and M&A needs in Europe. The companies we help vary in their stages development in the European market, with some companies just beginning in the early stages of structure development and others already having established well-developed structures.
Our solutions are clustered in the following areas:
•European presence establishment: We set up your European office and make sure you are reachable during European working hours. Additionally, we assign a business manager and inside sales professional to your company to take care of daily activities.
•Market analysis: We perform a comprehensive analysis of your competitive environment which includes pricing policies, terms and conditions, methods to enter/expand into the market, logistic and operational practices, and sales and marketing strategies.
•Lead generation and qualification: We generate leads on the networks and relationships we’ve built over the past 20 years. These proprietary resources contain exclusive market information about well-respected, well-established OEMs, Tier 1 and 2 companies, and also market distributors. The list of leads is then customized to help you more accurately target those markets most likely to be receptive to your company’s specific offerings. We then contact the qualified leads to introduce your product or service and explain its benefits.
