- Herrn Meyer zu Erpen, Cavallo
„When Mr Mertens asked us what we thought about the text for the website, we came up with plenty of positive attributes: professional, sustainable and well-informed. However, the most important thing is that the concepts and services provided by J M Mertens have helped us at Cavallo to continually expand our sales floors.
Both at our company and with our sales partners, Mr Mertens enjoys a very high degree of trust.
We are delighted to lend our support to Mr J M Mertens with this quote.“
- Burkhard Stuhlemmer, Managing Director, Baldessarini GmbH
„Mr Mertens created a detailed retail guideline plan for the BALDESSARINI store expansion. In addition, he succeeded in optimizing the working procedures at the “Fünf Höfe” BALDESSARINI retail store in Munich, where sales increased significantly during the project period.
JMM was fully focused on the project and communicated regularly with all the BALDESSARINI departments/interfaces.
Mr Mertens quickly identified himself with the BALDESSARINI world/brand and immediately assumed responsibility for the “Fünf Höfe” BALDESSARINI store. This formed a solid basis for mutual trust.
More BALDESSARINI projects have been planned with JMM.“
Herrn Oliver Grote, IVR GmbH & Co. KG
„Mr Mertens is a retail business professional and offers expert advice to the IVR purchasing group. In 2010/2011, Mr Mertens provided training on sales techniques to retailers from the IVR group. Mr Mertens has worked closely together with the IVR experience exchange group, which comprises six IVR speciality retailers who were then able to record above-average sales increases in a very difficult market. For the SPOGA trade fair, Mr Mertens informs all the IVR members of the key figures from the field of equestrian sports.
Mr Mertens has a business-like approach to his work, is highly organized and passionate about what he does. He understands the challenges faced by the stationary retail sector and implements pragmatic measures to deal with them.
Mr Mertens enjoys the complete trust and confidence of the IVR experience exchange group.
We look forward to working on more projects with JMM.“

„Mr Mertens worked with the pierre cardin brand in the following key areas during the period of retail growth:
Recruitment of store staff in Munich Pasing, the Hamburg AEZ shopping centre and the Düsseldorf flagship store
Retail area management focusing on staff leadership at the Munich Pasing and Hamburg AEZ stores
Establishing a basic structure for key figures for retail analysis at pierre cardin stores
Mr Mertens worked highly efficiently and in a straightforward manner. His staff motivation has long-term effects on the sales floors. The pierre cardin brand quickly gathered speed thanks to the pragmatic retail measures introduced to the sales floors.
Mr Mertens had access to all the figures relevant to the store while working for us. He worked trustingly with all the Ahlers retail sectors. Information from the pierre cardin stores was communicated immediately and in great detail.“

„Having worked on large-scale projects together, Mr Mertens has always impressed me with his highly specialized knowledge of the stationary retail business and, when working with us for a key customer, he also made a considerable contribution to the global development of the company’s range and to the reorganisation of the strategy for its stock and staff. I can wholeheartedly recommend “J M Mertens today we start retail.“

- Herrn Schächinger, HÄFELE
„J M Mertens supported HÄFELE from the planning to the implementation stage of the first Häfele partner shop in Vilnius. His work chiefly focused on:
Modularisation of our products
Integration of these modules into a furniture concept for the shop floor
Accompanying the production process up to the opening of the store
The structured way of working shown by Mr Mertens meant that we were able to open our shop after just 6 months. Indeed, we are still benefitting from the retail expertise of J M Mertens for our efficient and rapid shop expansion.
