Brand consultant, Strategic advisor, and International Design, Brand & Marketing Judge.
My focus lies in seeking out companies and opportunities that foster a seamless integration between research and development, innovation, and brand design and development. This leads to meaningful business outcomes, advertising, and marketing output in areas such as packaging design, store design, events, and a holistic approach to experience design and other consumer-facing engagements. My interests primarily lie in the Manufacturing, Consumer goods, and Fintech industries, where I apply my knowledge, innovation, and effective service delivery to ensure my clients' continued success.
As a premium consulting firm, I specialize in providing brand communications and design services to selected prospective clients in specific verticals, centered around Manufacturing, Consumer goods, and the Fintech industry. My ultimate goal is to become a recognized industry leader in Brand Design and development and business consulting services.
I aim to offer investment options that target brand buy-ins and ownership, with a focus on Research and Development to fuel innovation in Tech, Manufacturing and Packaging, and Business & Product development. My marketing philosophy is grounded in great thinking and human impact, with a strong emphasis on solutions heavily embedded in research and development.
My brand positioning is a result of the work done and partnerships with highly selected clients. I aim to become so desirable that profit comes not only from financial niche clients but also from internal investments, allowing me to invest in startups that lack funding for great ideas - Equity creation and management. I rely on fitting relationships rather than advertising myself, presenting solutions that attract clients.
Making a difference to humanity is not void of being profit-driven.
“Revenue is Vanity, Profit is Sanity and Cash is King”
– Alan Miltz
