At Marketing & Sales Leaders Forum 2013, foodservice executives came together for in-depth discussions on ways marketing and sales professionals can better collaborate and to share insights and best practices.
A highlight of the forum was an interactive and enlightening

Hale Group. Panelists included Jeff Schroeder, partner,
The Partnering Group; Art Bell, partner, The
Partnering Group; Annie Roberts, president,
SupplyTrack®, The NPD Group; and Dave Jenkins, managing director of
client solutions, Datassential.
