Testimonial
“Eucerin's Dermatological Skincare was successfully launched in Canada January, 2004. One key partner that insured the success of the launch was Mickey Tortorelli. Through a comprehensive and interactive training program, cosmeticians (beauty advisors) across Canada were trained on the new Eucerin products. We have seen Eucerin sales increase by 30% in selected drug stores following the training program! Thank you Mickey Tortorelli for being an invaluable partner!”
