Gordon Tetreault, Maxell’s director of sales and marketing, is leaving the company to start his own consumer electronics consultancy, Product Marketing and Consulting, in Wanaque, N.J.
Tetreault, whose last day at Maxell is Friday, May 21, said his 18 years at Maxell and 12 years before that at Memorex has given him the experience to successfully bring new products from conception to market. He said he has called on most of the major retailers in the U.S., as well as many in Canada and Latin America, and has worked with manufacturers in China, Hong Kong and Philippines to source product.
“We can deliver the whole 360-degree approach to product creation,” he said of his new company, adding that he and his team has launched more than a thousand products at Maxell. “There are all types of great opportunities out there.”
