Elliot, just like his father, always had a passion for business. He joined the company right out of college and immediately got involved in sales. He would study each account and look for the white spaces and niche categories that would benefit both the customer and the company.
Within a short period of time Elliot involved himself in all aspects of the company. He understood that as much as sales were important, bringing value to his customers would be a crucial part of the company’s success. Elliot also understood that in today’s times not only do we need to be competitive but we also have to bring our retail partners great product at key price points. Elliot joined the sourcing team, traveling to many countries and working with key factories to initiate new innovative manufacturing procedures in order to cut costs without sacrificing quality. Value has always been the definitive word in his vocabulary.
Over the course of time he has also taken charge of the design team. He opened our China office to allow Fuzion to operate most efficiently, as well as 24/7. In 2020, Elliot was appointed President of Fuzion Creations, being fully in charge of the day to day operations.
