ABOUT ME

RYAN MARKS - CPG Business Development Professional

I'm a seasoned business development professional in the CPG industry with a background in sales and digital marketing.  Not only have I helped build relationships but I've also created marketing strategies and executed on campaigns for some of the most well known companies in the world such as Xerox, Walmart, Starbucks, Callaway Golf, and SPG Hotels to name a few.  While working in the corporate world, I caught the entrepreneurial bug and co founded two start ups of my own.  One focused on my passion for golf, called C2PGolf, a mobile app which connects golfers all over the United States.  The other called Candidly Images that allows marketers to license images from Instagram accounts.  I continue to work full time at KraftHeinz in the greater New York City area and grow the start ups along with my team.
