Jeffrey Taub

AKRF, Inc.


Meet Jeffrey Taub — our September 2019 Member of the Month!

Where are you from & what brought you to NYC?

I was raised in Plainview, Long Island, went to college and lived in New York City, and now live in East Brunswick, NJ, with my wife and three children.

What led you to being involved with SMPS-NY?

Thanks to the encouragement of Marcy Stanley, I was fortunate to be involved with SMPS-NY early in my career by joining the Professional Development Committee and learning at the feet of truly exceptional marketing professionals.

What do you hope to gain from your SMPS-NY membership/experience?

I’ve already gained so much in the way of leadership development and professional visibility, and I’ll keep working hard for the chapter to bring these benefits to others.

How has being a member of SMPS-NY influenced your career so far?

My career might be half of what it is today without the platform SMPS-NY provides for professional growth, education, and networking.

We know every day is different, but what do you do in your role at AKRF?

I facilitate business development research and strategy while driving brand visibility activities.

What’s an ideal Sunday for you?

Tennis or softball in the morning, community pool with the family midday, and catching up on shows with my wife at night.

What do you like to do in your free time?

Play tennis, ride bikes with my kids, and read non-fiction.

Where can we see you in 5 years?

Doing my part to elevate the marketing profession in our industry.
