The Inflexion difference
Inflexion’s in-house country experts made us a good fit for management’s plans, and we have achieved a lot since the initial deal. We worked closely with the founders to bring in a new management team and introduced a highly experienced Chairman and latterly a CEO and FD. Our support office in China was instrumental in helping us to recruit a local sales manager and then driving the international sourcing capability of the group. We also invested in internal systems, including procurement and warehousing, and we drew on our digital expertise to make improvements to Vivona’s digital infrastructure and operations. Sales have increased, particularly in the US, and we continue to invest heavily into both front-office (sales and product development) as well as back-office resource.
We’ve had an incredible journey of growth and transformation with Inflexion at our side. Our rapid growth in the US food, drug and mass channel has enabled us to distribute our brands in over 20,000 top-tier US stores. Inflexion’s support as we built our global infrastructure and entered new markets was instrumental in helping us grow the business.
