Ron Cole MBA
Business Development Consultant
Before joining Fraser International, Ron spent 10 years as Regional Manager for International Business Wales where he worked alongside Bill Fraser. He too has extensive experience in helping Welsh companies grow their businesses abroad and has led numerous successful trade missions across Near, Central and Eastern Europe as well as in the Americas.
Much of Ron’s experience is in direct customer interaction and he has project managed many bespoke market entry projects across a wide variety of sectors. Having access to trusted contacts throughout the world is a strength that Ron can bring to any project that your company may require.
An engineer by background, Ron worked in the USA between 1986 and 1991, where he won the impressive accolade of Ford Champion of Excellence. He later returned to the USA to help establish the Welsh Assembly flagship office in New York City, finally returning to Wales in 2004.
"Ron has impressed me hugely with his professionalism, expertise and knowledge about international trade, most particularly in North America. I would recommend him unhesitatingly for any international trade issues, as well as for global networking and strategic international trade development. He understands the needs and challenges of business, and knows exactly how to help."
