A very brief history

about_img

Conekt is a family business founded by Seamus Mulligan in 2004, following an international career with Bachelors, Wiggins Teape, Pfizer and Adams (Cadbury) in consumer marketing. Over a decade ago, Seamus recognised the need for major and start up brands to outsource their sales and distribution ambitions in order to more profitably grow market share.

Our business name, Conekt sums up our belief that trade and brand relationships are inextricably linked, in mutual pursuit of improved profitability. Conekt’s mission is to cost effectively grow brand value and retailer share of market through a relentless focus on achieving brand ubiquity. “My own success in brand development is due almost entirely to relationships I built with retailers over the past twenty years. It helps that we’re a business built on family values and connections, if for no other reason than my family depends on its success!”

Our success is almost totally due to referrals.
