In 2010 Procter and Gamble decided to outsource their sales force and focus on their core strengths, making innovate products and bring them to markets. As CPM where already delivering their supermarket sales force P&G / Max Factor decided to contact CPM in order to maintain their sales and merchandising in drug stores. CPM took over liability of their people and continued with the field team and agreed strategy.

Our Solution

We directly saw the positive effect on sales climbing up to I X 108 managing the make-up units and selling custom-made year plans to the retailers. In 2015 P&G sold Max Factor to COTY. Although the strategy of COTY made some changes we are still successfully working with Max Factor with a passionate team of Sales Development Representatives that still have a great and trustful relation with the retailers.

Results

Year on year growth for the Max Factor brand in-store, being one of the best represented make-up brands in drug stores in The Netherlands with a strategy change that worked and still gets tuned quarterly to maintain the success and keep the pace.
