GlobalSpec's Jeff Killeen Honored as C-Level Visionary in Media Publishing

Folio magazine includes Killeen amongst its 2010 "Folio: 40"

Troy, NY (Business Wire) – April 29, 2010 – GlobalSpec CEO Jeff Killeen was honored in the April 2010 issue of Folio, the magazine of the publishing industry community. The Folio: 40 is the magazine's annual list of the individuals and trends having the most significant impact on their companies and the "media publishing" industry at large. It is the oldest, most comprehensive and most distinguished magazine industry compilation of its kind.

Killeen was included in Folio's C-Level Visionary list for his stewardship of GlobalSpec (, an e-media company that provides lead generation and brand exposure to manufacturers, distributors and service providers via its uniquely searchable online databases of industrial products, parts and services, more than 60 e-newsletter titles, 40+ online events, an industrial ad network as well as other highly targeted e-media solutions.

Folio cited Killeen for making GlobalSpec one of the true success stories of the past year, building a company that has evolved into a high growth, multi-format, pure-play e-business. The magazine lauded GlobalSpec for turning lead generation into a real and very viable business while many other B2B publishers are still assessing how to implement a digital strategy.

"The Folio: 40 always represents the brightest stars in the media publishing industry but to be named to the 2010 list, given what most media companies have gone through in the past year, is especially impressive," said Matt Kinsman, Managing Editor of Folio. "Each individual on the list is helping to remake the industry and drive their company forward at a time when so many publishers are still trying to wait things out."
