What our clients are saying:

“The Winthrop Group has been a key partner for Coach in growing our business over the past two decades. They have provided sharp insight into our target consumers, our competition, and our business, and have helped us reposition our brand and extend into new product categories. In all of this, they have combined strong intellectual capabilities with hands-on experience and deep industry expertise to ensure impactful results for our business.”

Lew Frankfort, Chairman Emeritus, Tapestry, Inc. (Coach, Kate Spade, Stuart Weitzman)

“The Winthrop Group worked closely with us to develop and launch the AutoTrader digital business.  In addition to collaborating with us on the business positioning and strategy, they provided a team of eight senior experts in marketing, sales, and product development who worked with us day-to-day to launch the business in just a few months.  Not only was their work insightful and practical, it resulted in what has become the largest Internet used-vehicle automotive site in the world.  To say they played a big role in the success of AutoTrader would be an understatement, because their work was totally instrumental in enabling us to get off on the right course.”

Chip Perry, Founding CEO, Autotrader Group | Cox Enterprises

We had access to our team at all times and they helped us think creatively and solve problems in a timely manner. Great people…great outcome!”

James Hummer, Founder, Whole Health Management, Inc.
