AICO Executive Vice President, Chuck Reilly stated “Denise is one of those unique individuals in a company who takes initiative in areas beyond her job description, and one of those areas has been the development of a comprehensive strategy to implement an E-commerce platform that benefits both our brick and mortar and ‘on-line only’ partner base.”

Reilly added, “Today’s business climate has alerted the traditional retailer that they must have an on-line strategy and that they have a major advantage by being able to service the consumer with a physical store front, as well on-line.  At AICO, our strategy is to help make sure our content is easily understandable on our website, as well as our customers’ on-line platforms. This is essential so we can better service today’s consumer searching for the AICO and Michael Amini brands.”
