PRINCETON JUNCTION, N.J. — Market Performance Group (MPG) announced that founding partner Tim Toohey is retiring and that the company has named two new members to its advisory board.
MPG said Tuesday that Toohey is retiring to pursue other business and personal interests but will continue to contribute his knowledge and consulting expertise as a member of the MPG Advisory Board. Since its launch 13 years ago, MPG has helped develop strategy and market execution for consumer goods clients ranging from large, multinational companies to small, entrepreneurial startups.
“We are grateful to Tim for his years of hard work and his exceptional business acumen, which have served to spectacularly position our endeavors well into the future,” stated MPG founding partner Marc Greenberger. “We’re thrilled that our fine colleague and friend will continue in his strong role on the board.”
Meanwhile, joining the MPG Advisory Board are Jim Mackey, who recently served as senior vice president and general manager of Merck’s U.S. consumer business, and John Hogan, most recently vice president of customer and logistics services for Johnson & Johnson and president of Johnson & Johnson Health Care Systems.
Mackey brings to MPG more than 30 years of sales, marketing and management experience in the consumer health care industry, with significant expertise in the areas of strategy development, customer management and organizational development.
“Having worked with MPG as a client, I have experienced firsthand the value they create, not just in terms of strategy but also in the effective execution of strategy in the marketplace,” Mackey stated. “I am excited to work with MPG and the advisory board to introduce their unique capabilities to a broader set of consumer goods clients.”
Hogan has over 35 years of industry experience and brings a deep understanding of supply chain management, customer logistics services, sales force design and post-merger integration, MPG noted.
“I am thrilled to join MPG as they look to help leading companies become world-class at strategy realization and market activation,” Hogan commented. “A powerful team, they offer experience and depth across many consumer goods business functions and channels. I look forward to partnering with managing partner Marc Greenberger and the rest of the team to shape the next phase of growth.”
Other members of the MPG Advisory Board include Doug Degn, former executive vice president of merchandising at Walmart; Bill Duffy, former vice president of sales at Johnson & Johnson; and Pat Peters, a former senior vice president at Unilever.
