Navigating Across Industries, Categories + Countries to Grow Commerce

Highlands started when Kevin O’Gara chose relationships over corporate life, relocating his young family from Delaware to Atlanta in 1962.

He founded Highlands as a sales Rep Group, supporting office products brands in the Southeastern United States.

His spirit of entrepreneurship and results-driven mindset are still an intrinsic part of our DNA. Today, as an international sales, marketing and e-commerce agency, Highlands provides a range of services to empower brands to thrive in today’s interconnected world of commerce. Whether it’s a B2B sales strategy, pure-play e-commerce or a hybrid approach, Highlands has the expertise and knowledge to drive revenue growth.

We seamlessly integrate services across industries, categories, and countries. However, we recognize there is no silver bullet, which is why working alongside our clients is at the heart of our approach.
This, combined with short-term tactics and long-term strategy enables us to deliver a sustainable model.

We are proud to be a trusted partner to brands from around the world. We cherish our journey with them – navigating the challenges and their potential, together.
