Woodbury, MN, July 6, 2015, Ned O’Doherty, President of Management and Analysis Practice at Category & Customer Development, has been recognized by Elite American Executives for dedication, achievement and leadership in sales and customer service.
In his sophomore year of high school, Mr. O’Doherty was approached by an officer in White Plains, N.Y., to work for the summer at Comb, Inc. Mr. O’Doherty did this job for five years and got involved with the sales and accounting aspect of the consumer product business. After college, he pursued a sports career, but then switched back to the consumer product industry, and eventually started his own company.
Mr. O’Doherty started Category & Customer Development, which is a consultancy, in 2010. Through the company, he offers services in consumer products sales and analytics, new product development, sales management consulting services, and market research and profit analytics. An award-winning business development leader with more than 20 years of experience, Mr. O’Doherty has become well versed in the areas of sales, marketing, category management, market research, and general management. He spends his days ordering enough materials for packaging, creating and implementing strategic plans to develop and cultivate customer and consumer growth, focusing on growth, distribution and consumer relevance of underdeveloped brands, offering a strong set of technical, analytical, people and presentation skills, driving revenue, and managing sales and support organizations.
Additionally, Mr. O’Doherty interfaces with senior management from consumer product companies and retailers to make sure the information about their consumer product goods and packaging information is accurate. He attributes all the success he has experienced throughout his illustrious career to his high level of integrity and pleasant personality. Moving forward, Mr. O’Doherty wants to be able to grab a hold of a languishing product or brand and turn into gangbusters.
Mr. O’Doherty was originally selected for inclusion in EliteAMERICAN Executives in 2015. We are proud to be featuring him again in EliteAMERICAN Executives for 2017.
