Global Distribution Solutions (GDS Ltd, based in Devon), is expanding its offering to companies based in the United States. GDS Ltd offers strategic business planning, marketing services, channel management, and United Kingdom distribution to clients in all segments of the marine industry.
The team is led by Jim Deheer and Adrian Gray (pictured left). Deheer made a name for himself as director of marketing and global brand director for several top brands in the marine electronics segment. His career has been spent creating multi-channel sales and marketing strategies as well as recruiting and managing global teams. Gray has enjoyed several global posts at the sales director and sales manager level.
“Our team has over 50 years of experience working with some of the marine industry’s most recognisable names,” says Deheer. “Our goal is to use our established relationships and proven tactics to benefit U.S. based firms with little to no international exposure and help them develop and execute a strategy for how they can enter the global market. The companies we currently work with treat us as part of their team, rather than an outside firm, and we strongly believe this is key to be the best partner for businesses.”
