    The success of Chervo doesn't end on the golf courses and in the most exclusive club houses. The collection is just the thing for everyday living. The brand's dress code is perfect for feeling just right any time of day where the comfortable, sporting style makes its mark with a dash of elegance. Chervò is just the ticket for those traveling, either for business or pleasure, always feeling at ease with oneself.

    Have established relationships in the wholesale business? Want to find a way to make commissions by making introductions?

    CHERVO is looking for Connectors in ten zones across the USA to start building teams and making connections:

    • ZONE 2: North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia
    • ZONE 3: DC, Maryland, Virginia
    • ZONE 4: Northeast (NY - ME)

    Through the Chervò Connection program, connectors receive development tools and experiences, receive product to test and for personal use, all while continuing to cultivate the relationships that they have formed in the industry throughout the years.

    These partnerships open new opportunities for independent connectors to grow their product portfolios and early participants in the program have the potential to build connection teams, in order to earn additional commissions from other connectors.

    Everything we do starts with authentic relationships. When you're part of the Chervò Connection, you're not just a partner and connector, but you're an extension of our brand and an inspiration to our business partners and loyal customers.

    READY TO DO THIS?

    If you're passionate about building and nurturing relationships that allow you to grow your product portfolio effectively, with minimal time and commitment, we'd love to hear more about you.
