Mosaic is a field sales and marketing company that works in both consumer and B2B environments in merchandising, selling, training and demonstration services. Mosaic was founded by Barney Finn, ad editor for Life magazine, in New York in 1947 as The Merchandising Group (TMG). In the 1980s, it entered the technology channel, always working for the manufacturer. It began serving retailers as customers in 2000 when it gained the Toys-R-Us business. In 2002, Mosaic merged with Sales and Marketing Group (S&MG), with Mosaic the surviving name, and in 2003, JLL Partners, a private equity firm, purchased the Mosaic division after the company had entered bankruptcy proceedings. Jim Rose became CEO in late 2004, moving to Mosaic from CEO of Havas' MPG
