Steve participated in a pioneering team to develop Hispanic marketing practices at the Colgate-Palmolive Company in the mid ‘80s. As the Hispanic market continued to grow, so did Gomez’ success and expertise. While at Dial Corp, Mr. Gomez led the company’s initial entry into the Latino market with Dial Soap and Purex detergent. During his 7 years with Schering-Plough HealthCare, Inc. (Fortune 100), Gomez flourished in a pioneering role launching Hispanic marketing, which included branding, advertising, promotions, public relations, community relations, and sales integration.
“National brands like Sunny D, Energizer, Clorox and Campbell’s have all looked to Stephen Gomez to create effective Hispanic marketing and retail programs,” said Don May, VP of Sales and Marketing, Brand Adoption. “He knows what it takes to create successful campaigns. When we work with brands we want to provide them with the best resources, and Steve is an integral addition.”
Recently Gomez has helped build the Hispanic market with Bar-S Foods Co., Freeman Beauty products, Ardell and Andrea Beauty products and Clubman Men’s products.
