When Arno Ruijzenaars sold his trading company five years ago, he decided to only do what he finds interesting. His new entrepreneurial adventure starts with the LEFF Amsterdam label, with which he sells stylish watches and clocks. The interior labels Karven and Graypants were soon added. Arno now distributes twelve brands in the Benelux and Germany, partly due to the connections of ConnectPush. Jaap Jan de Lange talked to him for Emerce.

From MokumThanks to the connection, the company is able to save approximately seventy percent in time per site, Arno indicates. The money saved can be put into other projects. For example, we are working hard on a consumer site, as well as a platform on which individual designers can directly offer their products to retailers by the end of this year.

Arno explains that the latter is a unique concept. “Retailers often find it too much hassle to place an order with each individual designer, which means that new designers hardly get a chance. With us, the retailer receives one collective order, regardless of whether he orders products from our labels or from an individual designer. There are a number of parties that do something similar, but they skip the retail channel. A shame, because consumers want to continue to see some products in real life. Not only now, but also in the future.”
