“I am extremely excited to expand our product portfolio into a new and underserved category of cord and cable management products in retailers across North America. Dotz is a unique, well-designed product line that was ripe for wider distribution and expansion”, says Gerard Toscani, CEO/President of Paris Business Products. “We provided an opportunity to Dotz LLC to bring a comprehensive, single-branded offering to our retail partners to cover the category.”
Dotz, LLC, has been developing and marketing the introductory Dotz line both nationally and internationally since 2005. Micah Maraia, the inventor and owner of Dotz, LLC, says, “Paris is well versed in working with retailers to bring incredible value to a category. Their expertise in marketing and distributing fast-moving, consumer packaged goods was what really attracted me to forming this license arrangement with them. Gerry’s team provides a matched enthusiasm that I have for the line plus a wealth of experience to take the brand to even more consumers.”
To help manage the growth, Paris has hired Mike Berman, National Sales Manager to spearhead Dotz opportunities outside Paris’ traditional retailer base. Mike brings over 10 years of consumer electronics experience in both retail and commercial arenas. He is a CE executive who has held senior sales positions with LG and Philips as well as, senior marketing and business development positions with Phoenix Marketing Associates and Dell. He has also developed the custom installer, direct market reseller and vertical markets, including healthcare, state and local government and education in previous positions.
Dotz, LLC, under the leadership of Micah Maraia, invented and marketed the Dotz cord and cable management line to national and international retailers starting in 2005. Now with an exclusive North American license with Paris Business Products, Inc., a company credited with over 45 years of consumer products marketing and distribution experience, the Dotz line has been repackaged and expanded for retail and commercial channels. Dotz is currently available through major retailers and e-tailers across the U.S.
