Our Clients

When we started with CVEN we did not expect that they would become part of our business long term. Over 3 years now and we are still securing opportunities together.

Peter Dredge (Director)

It’s amazing what a little confidence can do when you are talking to overseas buyers. CVEN’s support and experience in Asia helped me to negotiate confidently and secure some great contracts.

Marilyn Frederiksen (Partner)

The problem for us was time. We knew we had opportunities overseas but no time to review all the things that were needed. CVEN got in and put all the processes in place and helped us to secure the sales.

Mitch Watson (Director)

You have to look professional and be ready to do business. CVEN really changed the way we present to international customers.

Brylie Rankine (Director)

We were busy people and didn’t have the time to establish an overseas market. We knew we needed to look outside of Australia and CVEN did that for us. Now, our business sells more overseas than it does domestically.

Fred O’keefe (Partner)

CVEN took us from only selling in the domestic market to a company that distributes to over 5 countries and we are still growing.
