Jean started a demonstration company, Jean Murray Talent & Promotion, Inc. based in the Philadelphia area. As the retail market expanded, JMTP, Inc., also expanded to service the Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware areas for leading companies such as Krups, Bissell, Rowenta, Kitchen Aid, etc. in over 200 locations. Jean trained presenters who worked in high end department stores such as Bloomingdale's, Macy’s and JC Penney’s, as well as grass root's stores in your neighborhood supermarkets and big box stores. The key to success has always been service and training; prompt vendor service and constant reinforcement of product training have always been the cornerstone to the success of brand awareness and business development for our vendors.
