“I had the chance to work with Jonathon when he was the brand manager for the Northwave distributor in Australia. He started the business for Northwave so I was closely in touch with him, especially for the initial period. Jon did an amazing market research study in order to introduce the products to Australian dealers. He analyzed each model and price positioning compare to the competition. It was not just a mere matter of price but many different factors were involved, like market trends and consumers perception. I positively remember the big fight that came out of it. We communicated back and forth two weeks before finalizing a collection and a pricing structure to fit the Australian market at best. The results in the next year proved to be the right one.I’m extremely thankful for Jonathon; his touch allowed Northwave to become successful in Australia. I would be pleased to work again with him in the future.”Nicola Agostinetto, Sales & Marketing Manager, Northwave Srl
