Consumer Products and Retail

In a marketplace unprecedented for its global reach and competition, our clients rely on us for help dealing with the full range of challenges that may arise.

Meet the Partners

Today’s consumer goods and retail companies operate in an industry characterized by rapid transformation. With diverse challenges that include advancing technology, globalization, consolidation, supply chain acceleration and the growing power of the brand, it is difficult to stay ahead of the curve – much less innovate, capture market share or expand profitability.

Our specialists have worked with branded companies, from start-ups to leading Fortune 500 corporations.

To help today’s consumer goods and retail companies meet these challenges, PKF O’Connor Davies provides knowledge, insight and experience – all delivered by skilled specialists with a far-reaching understanding of the industry. As a result, our clients know that the critical decisions they must make to remain competitive are based on accurate assessments, up-to-the-minute information, realistic risk assessments and performance projections.

Tax, Audit and Comprehensive Advisory Services

The audit, review, tax planning and preparation support we provide is based on substantial experience in the consumer products and retail arena. We have guided firms of all types, including:

  • Apparel, footwear and accessories
  • Durable medical equipment
  • Electronics
  • Food and beverage
  • Fragrances and cosmetics
  • Home furnishings
  • Jewelry

In each of these areas, our dedicated specialists have a deep understanding of operations, manufacturing, distribution, licensing, marketing and technology. We’ve helped assess opportunity and risk, advised on how to attract new target segments in an impulsive consumer-driven market – and how to capitalize on technology and social media. We’ve helped determine whether it is more cost-effective to manufacture at home or abroad and create a blueprint for expanding manufacturing, operations and sales globally.
