Jupiter Prestige Group (JPG), a division of YFYJupiter, a brand packaging services provider for private label retail programs and brand owners in the food and general merchandise categories, announced it has appointed Marriott Winchester to the role of President and Michael Shannon to the role of Chief Operating Officer.
Winchester and Shannon will oversee expansion into the Consumer Package Goods (CPG), Retail, and Printer/Converter markets, using YFYJupiter/JPG’s structural and creative design concepts to develop adaptive designs, final artwork, 3D/CGI packshots, and high resolution prepress/repro (printing plateready) files.
Shannon and Winchester have a combined 60 plus years of experience, serving some of the largest and most successful global CPG and Retail companies. Their passion for innovation and obsessive focus on client’s needs have helped them achieve industry leading results in a highly evolving packaging market.
In today’s demanding online and traditional retail environments Winchester states, “The world’s largest brands are looking for a more simplistic workflow which provides faster turnaround, lower costs, and an integrated solution for content creation to support the explosive growth in eCommerce. YFYJupiter/JPG has both the resources and the vision to disrupt today’s traditional design to print model.”

Marriott and I have been an effective team in the past, and we are anxious to work with our YFYJupiter/JPG colleagues to redefine the packaging graphics industry.”
