Country Manager for illy Espresso Canada Inc.

In October 2013, Concord was awarded the illy Coffee business for the Canadian Market. Despite the brand’s international awareness, they had limited success in the retail market in Canada. Since taking on the brand, Concord has increased illy’s brand exposure and tonnage in the ultra high end coffee market increasing over 20% through increased distribution, store level merchandising (metal rack placement program), and securing in-flyer creative support such as “Italian Themed Events” bundled with other premium Italian positioned products. All this was achieved without an increase in historical price promotion as the brand continues to hold it’s average $60/kg consumer paid price.
