About Packer Mellem Sales

When Packer Mellem was formed in 2014, there were a couple of driving forces behind the initiative. The first was to create and foster an environment where really talented people can go to work every day feeling good about who they are and what they accomplish while making sure the job is performed at a very high level. The second force behind the creation of Packer Mellem was the gap in rep services that exist in the pet industry, by providing the opportunity for brands to increase their engagement directly with stores, which is where Packer Mellem believes the most opportunity for success lies. As part of their services, Packer Mellem values offering continued education and training, as stores will always be more successful if their staff is properly educated on those products. Packer Mellem knows that the end consumer will be happier with their purchase if they know what to expect from that purchase and they prioritize having a whole systems approach that doesn’t neglect any one part of the sales cycle.
