Dany Rammal, Managing Director of Providence Strategic Growth, said: “The tremendous success of Net Reviews since it was founded is a testament to Olivier, Laurent and Tom and we are thrilled to be partnering with them to help drive the business further forward. With e-commerce and customer engagement continuing to be focus areas for retailers, Net Reviews provides an innovative and attractive business model that increases e-buyers’ trust while improving online retailer visibility and fostering sales growth.
