A native of Salem, Indiana, Steve Bishop graduated from Purdue in 1986 with a degree in Agricultural Economics. Steve was recognized as the outstanding senior male student at Purdue, winning the G.A.

  Steve Bishop joined P&G in 1986, first working in purchasing for the foods division. From 1989 to 1994, he worked as an Assistant Brand Manager, before being promoted to Brand Manager .

  Steve briefly left P&G in 1994, and worked as Vice President of Marketing for the Christian Music Group of Sparrow Records/EMI, in Nashville, Tennessee.  He returned to P&G in the position of U.S.

Marketing Director, first for Dish Products, then Home Care Products, and finally, Laundry Products.   In 1999, he took a global assignment as General  Manager for Global Strategic Planning & Design for the Laundry Additives & Light Duty Detergents division in Brussels.  Steve returned to headquarters in Cincinnati in 2001 to the North American Fabric Care division.
