Cincinnati, OH (February 24th, 2010) -- Former P&G and Mars Sales Executive, Brian C. Marks, is proud to announce the launch TopSpeed Management, a new sports and sponsorships consulting firm that specializes in representation, branding, sales and route-to-market activation for consumer packaged goods companies and retailers. "We identified an opportunity in the sports industry to assist companies, teams and athletes to better leverage their assets and not leave sales on the shelf," said Marks, President and CEO of Top Speed Management.
