CMG President and CEO will Address how CPG Manufacturers can Gain Control and Influence


The Woodlands, Texas (March 07, 2016) – Stew Bishop, President and CEO of Customer Marketing Group, Inc. (CMG), will cover the most complex challenges currently facing natural and organic brands and present practical solutions to attendees at the Natural Products Business School this Wednesday, March 9th, at Expo West. In his presentation, Bishop will advocate why he believes in a model of service supported by systems as the most effective approach in the ever challenging retail environment.


With more than 30 years of leadership experience in consumer products, Bishop has transformed dozens of organizations through practical, intelligent business counsel and effective execution. He spent the first half of his career executing and managing Retail Operations at The Quaker Oats Company, Schering-Plough, and Bayer Consumer Care, where he was the VP of Sales before departing to join CMG. Bishop and his team understand how to effectively estimate the effects of a retailer’s operational changes on the manufacturer clients’ P&L, especially those influenced by the trade spending line. Through his presentation at Expo West, he will outline how manufacturers can gain more control and exert the maximum amount of influence to manage trade spending most effectively and efficiently.
