ROBERT M. ABRAMSON
Robert M. Abramson is an Easton Vice President. He consults in the areas of corporate and business strategy.
Mr. Abramson has had many years of corporate experience managing and turning around large operations: such as Sears Catalog ($4 billion) and Hanover Direct’s Home Fashions Catalogs ($400 million).
He also has strong experience in planning and acquisition evaluation activities. As a Senior Vice President and member of the Executive Committee at American Can, he was in charge of strategic planning and capital allocation. His major achievement, however, was creating the strategy to ease American Can from a slow growing packaging and paper products company to a fast growing financial services and retailing conglomerate. He evaluated over fifty serious acquisition candidates during American Can’s thirty-six month program to increase shareholder value.
While at American Can, Mr. Abramson spent much of his time developing business plans and capital projects in metal and plastic packaging, paper, financial services and retailing. He created strategies for Metal Cans, Plastic Packaging, Fingerhut, Musicland, PennCorp, Northern Towel and Tissue, Dixie, and Dunham’s.
Before joining American Can, Mr. Abramson was a strategy consultant for ten years at Arthur D. Little, Inc. where he focused on process consulting. He worked on strategy and corporate development assignments for Owens Corning Fiberglass, United Merchants and Manufacturers, Sears Roebuck, Brunswick, and many other firms.
At Easton, Mr. Abramson has focused on the information services practice sector, particularly as it relates to marketing activities. A significant amount of his current consulting activity is in process consulting.
Mr. Abramson is a graduate of the University of Michigan and the Harvard Business School. He has taught business policy at Clark University’s MBA program and at Arthur D. Little’s MSM program, where he was Dean for several years. He is currently a board member of Barry Blau, Inc.
