I made an important decision back in 1995 to build a business with a specialized focus on representing clients to the biggest and best retailers in the world, namely the clubs and mass retail. I also didn’t want to be a typical brokerage firm because the sale is only the beginning and the long-term success and growth comes with the full-service management of the program after the sale. Furthermore, our team develops, manages and implements every facet of the program from the initial concept to the shelf to sustaining profits and growth. We literally become an extension of our clients’ team in every sense.

We are celebrating our 22nd year of business, and I’m proud to say we’ve grown our business to over half a billion in retail sales annually. While I’m proud of the sales growth and success, it’s even more rewarding to provide these results on behalf of our valued, long term clients and partners who chose the Next Phase team to lead them to the club and mass merchandisers.

Our number one asset at Next Phase is our “human capital” with over 500 years of combined industry experience with a team of over 70 dedicated and committed professionals in offices all over the country. We go to battle every day 24/7 and 365 days a year on behalf of our clients and customers.
