Crain was vetted and selected by a review committee based on the depth and diversity of his experience. Criteria for acceptance include a track record of successfully impacting business growth metrics, as well as personal and professional achievements and honors.
“We are honored to welcome Geoff Crain into the community,” said Scott Gerber, founder of Forbes Councils, the collective that includes Forbes Agency Council. “Our mission with Forbes Councils is to bring together proven leaders from every industry, creating a curated, social capital-driven network that helps every member grow professionally and make an even greater impact on the business world.”
As an accepted member of the Council, Crain has access to a variety of exclusive opportunities designed to help him reach peak professional influence. He will connect and collaborate with other respected local leaders in a private forum. Crain will also be invited to work with a professional editorial team to share his expert insights in original business articles on Forbes.com, and to contribute to published Q&A panels alongside other experts. Finally, Crain will benefit from exclusive access to vetted business service partners, membership-branded marketing collateral, and the high-touch support of the Forbes Councils member concierge team.
“Geoff is a true leader and will make a great addition to the Forbes Council,” said Kingstar Media President and CEO Ed Crain. “VP and Managing Director Anat Freed and I are extremely excited to also announce Geoff’s promotion to Senior Director of Sales and Marketing. Geoff was here at the start of the company working part time as a student almost 20 years ago. Since that time, he has worked for outside agencies in the big brand category, moved to a senior role at a major affiliate marketing agency and re-joined Kingstar in 2019. In taking on this exciting new role Geoff will continue to help Anat and I and the Kingstar team build and expand the agency’s services. His selection to the Forbes Council will bring our expertise to a wider community.”
