Are you currently faced with “Hollywood Reps” that lack the drive, hunger and ambition that your brand deserves? You know the type, managing your business around a busy personal schedule that over time slowly becomes the priority. Personally, I found nothing more frustrating when working as a sales manager for a manufacturer in this industry myself.
At Coonhound Sales and Marketing our core values are to be professional, accountable and reliable. I witnessed a need for a driven, proactive group in Canada and simply acted on it. I knew that I could provide a better option for companies looking to do business north of the border. So, I bit the bullet and started this great agency.
So why do we call ourselves Coonhound? We wanted a name that was young and fresh, something that would stick with people and represent our capabilities and who we are.
If you have ever had the chance to hunt with any of the Coonhound breeds like Treeing Walkers or Blueticks, you will know there is nothing as excited, hard-working and focused on the result as a Coonhound.
Whether you are chasing mountain lions, coyotes or just plain old raccoon, the energy and determination a Coonhound brings to any hunt is a great representation of what we are able to bring to our customers and clients alike.
If you are ready for real change, contact us today.
