Our Founder’s Story

As with most entrepreneurial success stories , it started with a simple realization… a ”WHY NOT” moment.

Founder Scott Emerson experienced first-hand in his career at large CPG Companies that resources were focused on large brands; and not on medium to small brands with growth potential were under-resourced…deserved focused “TLC”. He saw the opportunity to be a strategic equity partner to brands that had earned consumer loyalty and possessed growth; as well as to brands that were emerging and poised to deliver on unmet consumer needs.

THAT IS “WHY”… The Emerson Group was founded in 1994 with the vision of providing emerging and small to mid-size brands strategic support, focus and professionalism that they deserve.

IT’S WHY we started as a sales partner and over the past 25+ years have expanded our industry leading capabilities to include Retail and Digital Commerce, Logistics, Supply Chain, Order to Cash, DTC Fulfillment, Insights & Data Analytics, Marketing, Go to Market Strategy, Equity Consulting, Consumer Affairs and Regulatory Services. Also, we have expanded our footprint where we provide these services to include US, Canada and Mexico.

While we have scaled to be a valued leader in the Health, Wellness and Beauty industry, we remain steadfast on maintaining a family environment, where integrity, relationships and stability matter.
IT’S Why we remain unsatisfied and restless to invest in innovative solutions for brands, retail partners and communities for today and the future.
