Robin Kramer is a brand marketing maven, natural business nurturer, master of relationships and a sales expert who has an impressive history with leaders in the retail industry that have built their brands on innovative merchandising and strong service cultures. Among these brands is Williams-Sonoma, Inc. where she utilized her operations management background to develop and refine the process of opening new stores during a period of rapid expansion across that organization’s three retail brands: Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn and Hold Everything. Kramer overhauled the store's associate recognition program; she also led the customer service functions for all retail brands, including the development and implementation of service standards in stores and call centers. She went on to implement similar programs and new initiatives at another forward-thinking retail brand, the Old Navy division of Gap, Inc.
For the past 20 plus years, Robin has worked with primarily small, upscale wholesale jewelry brands and designers to bring their products to market, position these niche brands for maximum exposure to their target customers and build relationships with national and international retailers. One such brand was Dogeared where she helped them grow from a small company into a well-known jewelry brand with sales growth over 800% in the five years she was there. She has a keen eye for recognizing products and designs that represent a unique and fresh approach in a crowded and competitive space.

Robin Kramer is the one of the best Wholesale consultants I have worked with in over 7 years. Robin's solid advice has helped my wholesale business grow by 65% year over year. Robin has helped me to establish clear action items that produce results. She has helped counsel me in using a voice with sales reps and store owners that is empowering and feels authentic. I love Robin's ability to help keep me accountable and in making decisions that are mutually beneficial for my partnerships. Her knowledge is expansive in all areas of business including management of teams, how to best curate and add new collections, catalogs/line sheets and most importantly, how to ask the right questions to gain the most insight into my business. I am confident that my wholesale business would not be thriving without the wisdom, enthusiasm and love of Robin Kramer!
