About Us

Kitchen • Bath Marketing is a manufacturers rep agency that represents cabinet manufacturers and decorative plumbing / hardware companies in California and Nevada.  Michael S. Thompson started Kitchen • Bath Marketing as a rep agency in 1985, in Dallas Texas.  At that time, it was doing business as Thompson & Associates and covered a territory consisting of Texas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana.  In 1990 the company was relocated to Southern California and has been based in Orange County ever since.

Kitchen • Bath Marketing has always specialized in representing cabinet manufacturers and high-end decorative plumbing companies.  Over the years, we have worked closely with many types of kitchen and bath dealers,designer showrooms, distributors, architects, designers, builders, and home centers.  We also have several years experience calling on and training "big box stores" including Home Depot and the Expo Design Centers.  We have extensive experience representing a full range of price points from builder grade to high-end custom.

As manufacturers’ representatives, we help our dealers with training, home shows, dealer meetings, design ideas, marketing and general business consulting.  Our goal is to be a valued asset to our dealers rather than just another sales rep.  Our responsibilities to the manufacturers we represent include prospecting for new accounts, sales presentations, sales and product training, motivating the dealers’ salespeople to sell our products and updating dealers on new product and policies.

Kitchen • Bath Marketing has extensive experience and proven abilities in all of the following areas:

     - Effective introduction of new products
     - Pioneering new territories
     - Opening many "quality" new dealer accounts in short period of time
     - Increasing sales from existing accounts
     - Database oriented marketing & prospecting
     - Providing superior customer support
     - 20/20 kitchen design software training
