CEO

Craig has an extensive knowledge of complementary medicine manufacturing, formulation of active formulas and excipient bases and a very sound knowledge of complementary medicine ingredients. His industry career, spanning more than 15 years began in the family business, a contract manufacturer founded by his Grandfather in 1972.

This manufacturing experience, coupled with Craig's sales experience in the complementary medicines industry uniquely places him to assist with new product development, product rationales and sales strategies and enables him to advise clients on the viability and best dosage form for their products.

In 2010 having identified a gap in the market Craig founded CMG. Complementary Medicines Group (CMG) is a service provider to the complementary medicines, food and over-the-counter pharmaceuticals industries. CMG supplies a range of goods and services to these industries and can assist from concept and formulation to manufacturing, right through to finished product supply, marketing, branding and SEO. CMG has developed a different approach to the supply and servicing of complementary medicines, to make life easier and to deliver products faster.

Craig's vision is for CMG to be a conduit for innovation, by bringing new concepts and technology to sponsors of complementary medicines in Australia, and take the hassle out of the management and sourcing of products and services.
