NetRush celebrates 10 years with new hires, new markets

"When Brian Gonsalves was a junior at Pacific Lutheran University, he cut his entrepreneurial teeth on an Internet business that he created selling nutritional products out of his college dorm room. While he would go on to sell that company, the e-commerce experience he gained helped set the stage for his current endeavor: Vancouver-based NetRush.

Gonsalves opened NetRush in 2006 with close friend, Chris Marantette, who has a background in finance. The company positions premium brands on the Amazon Marketplace, and has done so rather successfully over the last decade.

Originally, the company worked with a wide assortment of brands and products. However, over the years the team at NetRush has fine-tuned its mission statement, turning their eyes toward the lifestyle sector – natural products, sports and outdoors, health and personal care. Gone are the myriad of brands for the sake of having thousands of options.

Currently, NetRush works with a little over 40 brands – all known for excellence. Names like Leatherman, Shwood Eyewear, Bob’s Red Mill, Strider, Eagles Nest Outfitters and Alaffia (manufacturer of quality skin care products) are among their list of partners..."
