Kinsa Group would like to introduce you to Michael Kahn, a US citizen residing in Hong Kong for the last 7 years, who can launch your food, beverage and/or beauty products into multiple Asian countries including China, Hong Kong, Korea, Japan and Taiwan.

For over 30 years Michael has been marketing and selling American products to Fortune 500 companies globally, with the emphasis on Asia.  Leveraging and building key relationships with senior-level executives in those markets while leading successful international business development initiatives.  Michael has the relationships and a go-to-market strategy that enables him to introduce your brands effectively and penetrate these markets.

Recent Success Story:  Brought in by CEO to represent Naturipe Foods — $700 million company with manufacturing plants throughout USA, Canada, Chile, Peru, and Argentina they are one of the largest Blueberry companies in the world — to oversee and develop customers in China and Taiwan.

  • Responsible to introduce, and present products to potential large retail companies that had name recognition, and were serious to expand their international brands.
  • Targeted the top five Regions in China: Beijing, Shanghai, Guanjhou, Shenyang, Chengdu.  In addition to Taiwan.
  • Devised and implemented strategies by utilizing sales materials showing existing Naturipe clients worldwide, such as Starbucks, McDonald’s, Costco, etc.
  • Visited each Regional Headquarters and presented the Naturipe Brand to them.
  • Introduced 41 major potential partners, 30 in China, and 11 in Taiwan.

This International executive would like to apply his market knowledge to your new product launch strategy in Asia.  In 6 months he’ll have your product line within the top 5 regions in China in Supermarket, Convenience, and Department Stores.  Hire him as a contactor-consultant, facilitated by Kinsa Group’s Food & Beverage Executive Search, to open Asia or turn around your under-performing division for a monthly retainer of US$5,000, converting entirely to a 10% commission on sales of containers.

 

Should your company already have an international division, Michael can either spearhead that division, or work with the head of that division, to open Asia Pacific Countries and take them to the next level.  With either option Michael seamlessly fits into your Sales team by using Skype or WhatsApp to communicate as regularly as needed – daily, weekly, etc.  He is able to micro manage selling your products in the Asian marketplace with his clients in China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and Hong Kong.  This will allow him to present directly to your customers or attend trade shows on your behalf, saving your company costs on travel / accommodation as well as opportunities lost without a representative present in the market as often as needed.

 

Please feel free to contact me directly as Michael Kahn’s agent in the US at 414-367-5505 or laurieh@kinsa.com or Skype: laurie.hyllberg.  Kinsa has been recruiting and placing talent within the food and beverage industry for more than 30 years, and I believe this is a huge opportunity for small and mid-sized food companies to take advantage of ease of entry into the world-wide marketplace.
