Benno Duenkelsbuehler – Chief Expansion Sherpa

Some people say I have a real knack for building and expanding consumer businesses, but it is really just my ability to apply a unique formula of best practices assembled from my experience working with some of the most known and successful consumer brands in the U.S. during formative years.

What’s it like to work with Benno?

  • Engineer/analyst by nurture – raised in German schools, deep appreciation for process, systems, disciplines.
  • Innovator/creator by nature – much of my success is sparked by having insights and vision intowhat a company could be doing.
  • Engaged/high energy  not the right choice for a company that wants to be cautious and incremental. The market punishes companies that choose that path. Customers (and employees) are drawn to companies that show courage, commitment and vision.

I spent the first ten years of my career as a merchant and marketer for global retail brands (like IKEA and Pottery Barn), and my second decade in private equity boot camp turning around privately or PE owned distributors.

I challenge leadership. I learned early on that personal leadership is key to engaging employees and getting them aligned with the brand promise.
