Advantage Sales & Marketing LLC and Smollan Group Announce Global Partnership

Advantage Sales & Marketing LLC (Advantage) and Smollan Group (Smollan) announced the formation of a strategic international partnership to become the first and only global provider of innovative outsourced sales and marketing solutions for consumer goods companies and retailers. Under the terms of the international partnership, Advantage will make an investment in Smollan, and the two companies will cooperate to provide seamless global services with Advantage taking primary responsibility for execution within North America, and Smollan taking primary responsibility for execution within Africa, the Middle East, South America, Australia, and East and South Asia. The two companies will offer a unified solution across Europe through a newly formed joint venture. Leveraging to win across borders: The partnership gives Advantage and Smollan the opportunity to leverage best practices, capabilities, and technologies to offer highly effective and consistent international representation to clients, many of whom themselves have a global presence. Partnership years in the making: Smollan and Advantage have a longstanding association, drawn together as like-minded, people-focused companies, with similar histories of service innovation. Both companies also have proven expertise in consolidating companies serving fragmented markets into a cohesive whole that continues to understand and cater to local market differences. Advantage rolled up 18 regional retail sales agencies to establish a North American footprint in the 1990s and, more recently, over 15 regional foodservice agencies to form the national division of its kind. Unified solution for Europe: This combined experience will be integral as the Advantage and Smollan partnership turns its immediate attention to developing its unified solution for Europe through a new jointly-owned holding company, Advantage Smollan, for which they are actively pursuing like-minded acquisition partners who are culturally aligned in a quest for service excellence, thought leadership, entrepreneurial spirit, all leading to better results for clients and customers.
