AKRON, Ohio, May 24, 2012 (SMB Now) -- Powsumer.com, a new consumer-driven pricing website scheduled to launch later this summer, has appointed Peter Tahmin, vice president at Ritz Camera & Imaging and co-founder of the Ritz Interactive e-commerce network, to its advisory board.
Tahmin will be using his considerable expertise as an executive in the online retail space to assist Powsumer.com with its launch, branding and operations initiatives. Founded by actor, entrepreneur and philanthropist Corbin Bernsen, Powsumer.com promises to bring consumers together in purchasing groups or "packs," to ensure they receive the lowest pricing possible on a wide range of products and services. At the same time, the site will provide a conduit for distributors, retailers and manufacturers, allowing them to move inventory while still maintaining profitable margins.
"I'm thrilled about my new advisory role, and I look forward to helping Corbin and Powsumer.com chart a smooth course for growth and success,"
said Tahmin. "It's truly a unique site -- one that will leverage the power of the Web and social networking to benefit both consumers and suppliers."
Bernsen is excited about tapping into Tahmin's nearly 15 years of e-commerce experience to ensure Powsumer.com achieves its objectives.
"Peter will serve as a valuable resource for the entire Powsumer.com team," Bernsen noted. "We want our site to be a groundbreaking tool focused on community empowerment, allowing the community to actively participate and drive the price in the consumer decisions they make.
Peter's knowledge and experience will help us accomplish that goal."
