Gary S. Laben Fund

Gary S. Laben

On Sunday, October 14, 2012, more than 350 industry leaders from the marketing field paid tribute to Gary S. Laben, Chief Executive Officer, Research Now (who was CEO of KBM Group at the time, and later became CEO, KBM Group, and Global Chief Data Officer, Wunderman), as he was honored with the prestigious Edward N. Mayer, Jr. Education Leadership Award, bestowed by Marketing EDGE at its Annual Awards Dinner.

Gary is recognized for his extraordinary support in helping to advance data-driven marketing education at the college and university level.  To mark this occasion and to further honor Gary’s name and impact on the lives of students pursuing marketing careers, the Marketing EDGE Board of Trustees has established the Gary S. Laben Fund.  Contributions to this fund will provide general and program operating support for Marketing EDGE, furthering the organization’s mission:  to Educate, Develop, Grow, and Employ college students in the field of marketing.  Marketing EDGE is currently accepting tax-deductible donations to this tribute fund.
