The Marketing Professionals Network, or MPN, is a 20 year-old, Boston-based networking group of professionals who are experienced in selling, advertising, marketing, communicating, and/or promoting an organization’s products and services.
MPN's mission is to create a space where members can get in-depth information on area job opportunities, learn advanced job-search techniques, support each other during the ups and downs of the process, and, finally, to build a solid network for the long-term benefit of their careers.
This is accomplished through weekly meetings, periodic workshops, networking events and individual career counseling. George Mercer is the facilitator of MPN

MPN members are experienced B2B, and B2C marketers with a mix of both company and agency backgrounds and come from a wide range of industries including technology, finance, life sciences, education, consumer, and non-profit sectors.
