“I have developed product plans to launch more than 300 products in Australia and New Zealand and I’ve built 15 product brands of our own.” – Vanessa Garrard.
Vanessa Garrard launched E3 Style in 2006, driven by a desire to create a business model that delivered products to retailers and consumers faster, more economically and more efficiently. Vanessa is a director, sales and marketing head, and responsible for product and sales strategy, business growth and channel plans. E3 Style, which has 15 staff in Brisbane, Sydney and Shenzhen in China, offers retailers a complete product outsourcing solution that includes product sourcing and development, branding, packaging and artwork creation, and market intelligence. It has clients in Australasia, India, Italy, the US and UK and South Africa. Vanessa built the business plan for E3 and the company achieved all its three-year goals within a year and doubled its projected turnover within two years. It won business against international competition to supply AV cables to a major retailer as well as products such as top-selling ebook brands, digital photo frames and youth electronics.
