The firm's founder, Robert Brandau, collaborated with the three principals of KCG to reposition Increasing Revenue, Inc. as a thought-leader in the areas of salesperson recruiting, coaching and training with a custom designed site that provides a strong online presence.

There is no doubt that by 2014, I will be able to show a definite profit from working with Katalyst Creative Group."
