BlueOcean NutraSciences Inc. Signs Agreement with Leading Digital Marketer
January 12, 2017 (Source) — BlueOcean NutraSciences Inc. (“BlueOcean” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: BOC) is happy to announce that it has retained the services of Jurgen Pauquet to advise BOC on E-Commerce, DRTV and other media strategies. Mr. Pauquet was previously the Senior Vice President of Digital & E-Commerce International at Guthy Renker, an industry-leader in direct-to-consumer (“DTC”) marketing.
“To retain someone of Mr. Pauquet’s caliber at this early stage cannot be underestimated,” said BlueOcean’s CEO Gavin Bogle. “Jurgen previously started and led large-scale businesses and was part of the team behind perhaps the most successful DTC product in history. His input will be invaluable as we develop our marketing programs.”
Mr. Pauquet is a DTC marketing expert with significant executive experience in business strategy, e-commerce, and international expansion – both at startups and global blue-chip companies. Most recently, he served as SVP, Digital & Ecommerce International and Managing Director, Greater China & India at Guthy-Renker, which is best known for celebrity-featured infomercials and America’s #1 acne brand.
Previously, at Warner Bros. and Thomson Corp. (now Thomson Reuters), Mr. Pauquet also launched and successfully scaled several consumer internet ventures, achieving category-leading positions for each and totaling more than $200M in revenues.
“It is very important to develop and implement the right marketing programs early in a product’s life,” said Mr. Pauquet. “I look forward to working on that process with the BlueOcean team during this initial launch phase.”
