Corporate Management Group (CMG) was founded by Marv Sawyer in 1987. After 15 years in the world of Fortune 500 companies, Marv wanted to use his expertise to partner with companies to strategically help them save time and money on freight, distribution and transportation issues.
CMG has now been in business for over 25 years, manages $350 million in freight annually, and serves clients from California to the Carolinas, with 31% of clients headquartered internationally.
CMG partners with companies to help “insource” freight management and stay on top of ever-changing freight rates. Clients retain all the savings, an average of 26% and a range of 8%-43%. CMG is not a logistics company or an asset-based provider and requires no contracts for its expertise and services.
The CMG Team is made up of our leadership team, market business development partners and regional operational directors.

When drudgery is taking you for a spin on the dance floor, how do you let purpose and meaning and fulfillment break in and dance with you instead?
I am a collector of home-spun wisdom – not the wisdom of deep philosophical thinkers, but the down to earth wisdom generated by plain ordinary folk.

Tomfoolery. Merriam-Webster defines it simply as “foolish or silly behavior.” Some of its synonyms are buffoonery, monkey business, and nonsense. I like to define it as foolishness on steroids.

Too bad football isn’t played in April, because what happened prior to the Clemson/University of SC football game in November 1961 would easily qualify as one of the greatest April Fool’s jokes of all time. The fact that it didn’t happen on April 1 does not diminish what today is simply known as “The Prank.”
