We’ve missed you! As you probably know by now, we are no longer The Progress Group (or TPG as we used to call ourselves sometimes). On May 15, we spread the word through a press release here and our global office did it as well, here. We were delighted to take the Crimson & Co name and brand and so we’ve changed our website to Crimson & Co North America (crimsonandco.info) and you will note it features many components of the Crimson & Co (crimsonandco.com), including global news from around the world.
We’re excited to be back on schedule with our supply chain and logistics recaps and our regular blog features and series. We have a few things lined up and are working on our editorial calendar right now.
