Winsight is a leading B2B information services company focused on the food and beverage industry, providing insight and market intelligence to business leaders in every channel consumers buy food and beverage – convenience stores, grocery retailing, restaurants and noncommercial foodservice – through media, events, data products, advisory services, and trade shows.
The Editor at CSP will work with the Editor-in-Chief and the rest of the team to report and write stories that educate, inform and inspire our convenience-store industry readers.

The Editor will also work with WGB’s web production team, as well as audio producers, designers and other editors across the content team (and, occasionally, Winsight’s other industry publications) to project manage and edit special projects.
