For Forklift, this new joint venture dramatically expands its core marketing, creative, and culinary brand management capabilities.  Food Industry veteran and President of Forklift, Betsy Fox, said, “Forklift is known for its resourceful and innovative integrated marketing programs for baby brands; adding shopper marketing and distribution consulting positions us to offer more options than ever before and competitively extend the length of our engagements.” Fox continues, “This alliance increases our marketing practice and creates a new strategic and creative resource for virtually all types of CPG and B:B products. Now all clients can get full-service, large agency marketing expertise from one supplier.”

Cynthia Ward, CEO for Tier One Solutions, said about the two organizations joining forces, “Forklift and Tier One are a great fit for each other in terms of both consultancy and cultural alignment. This collaboration is a testament to our shared vision of nurturing emerging food and beverage brands from end to end. Betsy’s background in big agency global branding further enhances our potential to position brands from other countries into the U.S. market successfully. We look forward to capitalizing on this remarkable opportunity together.”

This joint venture will enable additional exposure to new and expanded clients for Tier One and allows Forklift to grow even stronger as a global provider of marketing products. Lyndon Neal, COO of Tier One Solutions, says, “As we move forward with exciting new opportunities for growth, we will continue to provide the highest quality of service and marketing expertise that has been the backbone of our success.” Neal further points out, “Emerging Food & Beverage brands are an exciting growth market for our shopper marketing and activation expertise. We are excited to join forces with a partner that, when combined, creates a competitive juggernaut not only for customers in the U.S. but around the world.”

Among the first efforts of the joint venture will be Forklift’s new Thai venture, which has been reinvigorated after being derailed by the pandemic. Tier One and Forklift will also launch a series of thought leadership programs starting in July.
