Transcript

  • 1. Resume and Portfolio I have worked in the Point-of-Purchase Display industry for 17 years... The most recent of which was my work as a critical component of the team at the Royal Promotion Group, where I served for 10 years building their display engineering capabilities before my Departure in Septem- ber of 2007. I have extensive experience in the creation of countertop testers, merchandiser and glorifiers, as well as endcaps, floorstands and in-line gondolas, for virtually every brand in the cosmetic and fragrance industry. I have implemented display and promotions in retailers such as Walgreen’s, Duane Reade, Tar- get, Walmart, Macy’s, Sephora, Bloomingdales, and Nordstrom.I have also been involved in the Design and construction of retail boutique environments for Bliss, H2O, Paul Mitchell, Bath & Body Works, Anna Sui, and Vera Wang. I have worked with a diverse group of manufacturers, fabricators, toolmakers, molders, and woodshops in the Northeastern United States, Canada, and China. Since then I have left the industry to work in corporate and Trade Show Exhibits and events. I work and live in southwestern Connecticut and seek only hourly contract display engineering work. I work in AUTOCAD R2007, and can output PDF and Adobe Illustrator files. Services include: Pricing/es- timate drawings, fully detailed shop drawings, prototype coordination and manufacturing implementation and troubleshooting. I will quote work if required. Sorry, no turnkey. Thank you for your consideration. BRETT KALM 363 Freeman Ave. Stratford, CT. 06614 (203)-375-7633 (203)-673-6174 CELL brettkalm@yahoo.com ESC to exit Full Screen Mode
