menu Summary

Even though I am a garmento and salesman by trade, I’ll always be a marketeer at heart. I have a passion for exceeding customers’ expectations; problem solving; and setting up companies and team members for success not failure. Currently, I’m a strategic consultant and private label marketing specialist for companies focused on virtual financial software; virtual AMP office supplies; wholesale, retail, and eCommerce apparel, footwear, and/or accessories which means that I hit the deck running enthusiastically bringing to them an optimal strategy, dynamic structure, and winning culture for profitably growing their businesses. I have a knack for being a very strong administrator who is very well grounded in all aspects of running a fast paced, complex business, whether B2B or B2C; managing others so they feel like a partner not a employee or vendor; always keeping my cool under pressure; and being someone you can rely on. P.S. Raoul Gruenberg possesses a wealth of skills, background, and expertise with a strong work ethic; previously holding executive positions as a Chief Operating Officer, Vice President of Operations, General Merchandising Manager, and Vice President of Sales. You will not find anyone else who can do a better job than Raoul; you will be thrilled with the results. Raoul_Gruenberg@yahoo.com, 310.994.3022
