what people say aboUT ARKARO

Mark Blackwell - Arkaro

“ Commercial Excellence has been positive for us for  three main reasons: The first reason is that it took us out of our daily routine, that it took us out of what we were used to do! The second reason, it is that it brings us some tools, it gives us tolls to really go and catch the right and big fish! The third reason is that it gives motivation to the team, reinvigorates them, regenerate them, and that helps us to set some new targets. There was something new that allowed us to take a step back from what we were used to do, and to embrace for good the new way to do things. So, I felt really good during these first three weeks with Arkaro.”

Philippe Konan, Solevo Senegal

Diamalteria is a rather small business with 20 mln Euro turnover but a wide range a very wide range of SKUs had grown over the years to serve a multitude of small and large B2B food ingredient accounts. Mark helped us tremendously in harnessing and streamlining complexity.

Despite his long experience with large organizations, Mark has understood very well the dynamics and people in a small business environment. Mark could adapt the world-class approaches of the industry giants to suit our reality. Mark was an attentive listener, he helped the top management to formulate the right questions and he then worked with the teams to crunch numbers in order to bring meaningful answers.

More than a consultant, Mark was also a coach who left us with new capabilities.
