Allison Kendro Ocanto

Independent Consultant


As an independent strategic marketing consultant, Allison Kendro Ocanto focuses on recognizing opportunity, solving problems and creating value. She believes it is important to not only know where you are, but where you are going and is looking to help businesses get there. Ocanto understands that small business is big business because she has experienced it first-hand (launching her own company in 2012) and believes great design means nothing without strategically engaging, relevant content. She has experience in retail, business-to-business (B2B) and consumer packaged goods (CPG), as well as with latin markets (Spanish language proficiency), specifically working with top companies like Lowe's Home Improvement, Splenda, Campbell's Soup Company, eBay, Grupo Unicomer and Deli Pollo S.A. Her experience and expertise cover the following five areas:
