The primary objective of our distributor search project was to identify and secure ideal full-scope partners (sales and after-sales) for our client in Kenya and Ghana. This involved understanding the client’s product, target audience, and desired distribution channels across Africa. We aimed to find distributors with established networks, strong reputations, and proven success in aligning with brands akin to the clients’. Through this targeted search, we sought to optimize the client’s market reach and accelerate product sales throughout Africa.

We work with clients across all industries.

Our approach

We leveraged our pan-African network to map relevant distributors. Evaluating each against client needs (product, audience, channels), we prioritized those boasting strong reputations, established networks, and experience aligning with similar brands. This ensured a targeted selection for optimal market reach and sales acceleration. 


Our targeted search identified two perfect distributor fits – one Kenyan and one Ghanaian – aligning with the client's product and target audience. We facilitated introductions, sparking successful negotiations that led to long-term partnerships. These thriving distributors continue to significantly boost the client's sales and brand presence across these key Kenyan and Ghanaian markets.
