Westport, Conn – The New England Consulting Group has made Debra Schumacher managing associate. Schumacher has held positions of increasing responsibility at Quaker Oats and SC Johnson, managing brands like Gatorade, Edge, Ziploc, Windex and Glade. She was also a consultant to Daymon Worldwide, focused principally on store brands/private labels. Debbie did her undergraduate work at Smith College (BA in Economics with Honors) and graduate work at the Harvard Business School (MBA, Marketing Focus).
She will focus on strategically and executionally assessing clients’ marketing and sales needs. We believe Debbie is not only one of the brightest general management and marketing minds in the business, but also that Debbie’s background in consumer packaged goods will provide our clients with access to a rare combination of marketing and management expertise covering national and store brands. Says Founder Gary Stibel, “Debra has built national brands in competition with store brands, and store brands in competition with national market leaders. Her ability to do both is evidence of her value to national branded and private label manufacturers and retailers as well.” See www.necg.net
