Vancouver, Canada, July 25, 2018 – Legend Power® Systems Inc. (TSXV: LPS) (“Legend Power” or the “Company”), a global leader in voltage management technology, announced today that it has implemented additional key elements of its U.S. expansion strategy. Extending the success seen in its Canadian buildout, and based on insights gained there, the Company is targeting five additional U.S. geographic markets with a team comprised of Company veterans and an external expert with proven corporate growth expertise.
Director of Sales, Kathleen Reeves who was key to the successful development of Legend Power’s Ontario sales growth, has relocated to New York City to strengthen and expand the sales team there. New York, represents a significant opportunity for Legend Power. The Company has already completed a sale and installation with a Fortune 100 company in Manhattan, and is nearing completion of additional deals.
Director of Business Development, Erik Wolfe is now focused on development of the additional five new U.S. markets by the end of 2018. Mr. Wolfe will leverage his direct experience and success in developing reseller channels in Canada to identify partners that have proven resources, aptitude and strong customer access. With thousands of potential resellers to choose from, the Company is applying knowledge of what has worked before, to attract the best available resellers.
To further support and ensure the success of the U.S. expansion, Legend has engaged well- regarded corporate growth expert, Norman Friend to ensure the Company’s channel growth programs are world-class. The engagement of Franchise 101 Incorporated will focus on development of a complete “personalized reseller program” to ensure strong sales results for the Company’s growing U.S. reseller network. Mr. Friend has guided strategic growth structuring, implementation planning and execution across both Canada and the U.S. for hundreds of companies.
“Our strategic plan for U.S. expansion is based on replicating what worked in Ontario, Canada’s biggest market,” said Legend Power® Systems CEO Randy Buchamer.
“We are confident that now is the time to introduce targeted vertical channel programs to attract the very best partners in new U.S. markets. The Company has ample opportunity for continued growth in Ontario and we’re on the verge of seeing results in the U.S. as execution of the plan ramps up.”
