ABOUT AGENCE RÉSEAU-ITALIA
Agence Réseau-Italia came into being as a result of the vision and determination of its president and founder, Nancy Rossi.
Originally from Italy, Nancy moved to Québec in 2001 after obtaining a degree in international administration.
After arriving in Québec, where she knew only her husband, Nancy began working at the Italian Trade Commission (ICE Montréal). Her work there introduced her to market development, a field she instantly fell in love with. Once her mandate with the Italian government was completed, she began searching for ways to continue working with Italian companies that wanted to pierce the Québec and Canadian markets, and Québec-based companies that were seeking guidance on how to enter the Italian market.
In 2005, Nancy started her own business as a self-employed entrepreneur.
Her first clients were the Festival mondial de la bière de Montréal and the Festival mondial de la bière de Strasbourg, two popular events that celebrate craft beers. She worked with festival organizers from 2005 to 2013 in order to grow the participation of Italian craft brewers at these events. She also organized and managed the stands of Italian participants during the festivals.
In 2007, she landed her first contract with the Sélections Mondiales des Vins (SMS) Canada International Wine Championship, which is based in Québec City. Nancy continues to serve the interests of this major wine competition to this day, now, as its general manager.
In 2009, she founded Agence Réseau-Italia, which is based in Brossard. Her list of clients would continue to grow with the addition of Gruppo Industriale Tosoni, which mandated Nancy to assist it with setting up shop in Québec and in creating Saira Canada (today KTK Canada). Nancy also served on the board of directors of KTK Canada for several years. Shunga, a Québec-based company, and Tourisme Mauricie also called on Agence Réseau-Italia services, this time, for the translation of various documents.
In 2014, Agence Réseau-Italia created an operating arm, Distributions ARI inc., an import/export company that helps its customers to better position themselves on the Québec market. From 2014 to 2019, Distributions ARI inc. concentrated its efforts primarily on the importation of bottles, and since 2016, on importing food products (olive oil, artisanal pastas, pastries). Distributions ARI also conducts operations under the name MonOlivier.
In 2017, given the ongoing expansion of Agence Réseau-Italia’s activities, the company moved into a larger office located in the industrial district of Brossard. Also in 2017, the agency changed its name to Agence Réseau-Italia & International in order to reflect its ever-growing international activities.
In 2019, Agence Réseau-Italia celebrated its 10th anniversary. Market development remains a passion for Nancy, and she is eager to take on new challenges that will enable both her clients and the agency to continue expanding.
On November 22, 2019, Agence Réseau-Italia held its first international conference on neuromarketing in the wine industry, which was presented by Professor Vincenzo Russo of IULM University in Milan, Italy.
