PLMALive! Talks to Christopher Durham

Several weeks ago I had the opportunity to make the trip to NYC and spend the day with the team at the Private Label Manufacturers Association (PLMA). I made the trip because the PLMA has invited me to become a regular commentator on their web based video magazine PLMALive! In the first of three segments the PLMA’s Tim Simmons and I sat down to discuss my new book Fifty2: The My Private Brand Project.

Stay tuned for more segments throughout the year.
