Distribution help - companies or independent consultants

Hi.I was wondering if any of you have worked with companies or independent consultants that help tour companies distribute their products.I am mainly interested in USA, Brazil and China markets. I don't really know if this exists, but the idea is to have someone that works in those markets and has lots of contacts there to introduce products to the companies that can sell it and bring more deals to us.Any ideas?ThanksAlexSee More
