President’s Message

How consulting should be done.

Many years ago, before starting Export Solutions, I was responsible for trade compliance at an international company. In that role, I had a variety of encounters with outside consultants who, in my opinion, were of little or no use to our organization.

These firms were good at quoting excerpts from the regulations, but they did not understand our business. They made little – if any – attempt to help us apply the rules to our processes, products and technologies. These consultants were always eager to say, “You can’t do that.” Yet they rarely provided me with ideas for what could work. Instead, I was left trying to figure out how to establish my own program for compliance.

That was the genesis for Export Solutions – a consulting firm dedicated to making meaningful change for our clients. A firm that not only helps you understand the regulations, but one that also provides real-world solutions to address the realities of the products, markets and challenges you face every day.

Over the years, we’ve been privileged to work with hundreds of organizations of all sizes. But it isn’t the size of the company that determines our success. It’s our unwavering dedication to providing the help you need. Perhaps that’s why, in a recent survey, 100% of our clients said they would recommend us to others, and 90% rated “valued-added services” as their primary reason for choosing to work with us.

I invite you to experience trade compliance consulting the way it should be done.
