Syracuse, NY – Brenner Business Development (BBD), has signed a strategic partnering agreement with Koios Associates LLC out of Boston, MA which will allow the firm to better serve the needs of its clients who are looking for help with entry into emerging and frontier markets in Africa, the Middle East and Southeast Asia.

”I am extremely excited to have Charles Krakoff, founder of Koios as a strategic business development partner on board to help open the doors to these emerging markets.” Krakoff, the founder of Koios, brings over 20 years of market development experience to the table having worked in 50 countries, lived in 12 countries, and visited over 100. His firm has consulted with the likes of the WTO, McKinsey, Morgan Stanley, and the World Bank. He is an expert in the development of industrial and techno parks, special economic zones and free trade zones, as well as in export development, investment promotion, and corporate finance. Charles advises both government and corporate clients on market and investment strategy, risk assessment, project feasibility studies, and raising capital.

BBD’s founder has experience in business development within a wide range of industries – from financial and pharmaceuticals, to telecommunications, building construction and medical devices. While BBD’s core focus is on promoting bilateral trade between the USA and German speaking countries (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) the firm has come to appreciate the value other consulting firms can bring to the table when trying to help an existing or new clients expand into other foreign markets. Charles Krakoff remarked, “Koios and BBD, working together, can offer American and European clients a global reach, enabling them to access markets and extend supply chains worldwide.”
