We have a solid reputation in our home province of New Brunswick - and with the success of our products and service, we wanted to expand into the other provinces, and also into the US.
We engaged Kingsford to help us develop a market expansion strategy - we wanted to move quickly, and they delivered.
They provided a very detailed analysis of the Atlantic Provinces and New England market - verifying some of what we believed, and also identifying new and different perspectives and considerations.
Ultimately, not only did they deliver a market strategy and detailed implementation plan, but they provided us with crucial direction on the internal organisational and leadership transitions we would need to make in order to achieve our aggressive growth goals. They provided us with an invaluable actionable plan, and we are now well on our way.
Working with the Kingsford team was a great pleasure - we met regularly, they kept us updated on progress and their latest thinking and encouraged our feedback. They were very collaborative and told us straight up what they thought. For the final part of the project, they guided us through the process of internalising their findings and recommendations - this was a crucial activity ensuring their work moved from a report and firmly into our heads.
We would thoroughly recommend Kingsford to anyone considering new products, new markets and wondering if and how to go about it.

I have worked with the Kingsford Team over the last year as they helped me to develop our North American market entry strategy.
They brought out our strengths and developed a solid market position that is starting to pay off for us. In fact, they have connected me directly with potential clients (and even sat in on the first sales calls) that could increase our turn-over by at least 50%.
Andrew has profound expertise in what it takes to sell in North America, and Jelena understands the culture of European businesses very well. They are approachable, professional and effortless to work with. It almost felt like they were a part of my team. I strongly recommend them to any company that wants to expand in North America.

Kingsford’s approach to assisting clients with developing a clear line-of-sight to potential markets and end-use customers was professional and enjoyable. They very quickly developed a thorough understanding of our niche markets and technology applications in the hydrogen and zero-emission power space. Consequently, they were able to provide great breadth and depth in their research resulting in very reasoned insights and recommendations.

For many reasons my team and I will definitely work with Kingsford again.
As one of the largest appliance manufacturers in South America, we have always wanted to expand into the North American market. We chose Kingsford Consulting to help us build a plan to get there. They exceeded our expectations in every way.

I would highly recommend Kingsford to any CEO who is serious about expanding in the North American market.
We worked with Kingsford to interview a series of our clients to understand how our QuickFacts insurance broker software fits into their daily routines and how it impacted their businesses.
