About me

An image of Ben Grossman in his office.

I serve as co-president of Grossman Marketing Group.  Prior to assuming this position, I served as the director of my firm’s Green Marketing & Sustainability Practice, which I launched in 2006.  Continuing my commitment to sustainability, I founded SwagCycle in 2019.

I was a past recipient of the New England Direct Marketing Association Prodigy Award.  The Prodigy Award is given to one marketing professional each year in New England under the age of 30 who has added the most to the art and science of direct marketing in the prior year.  Over the last several years, I have spoken to a number of groups and conferences, as well as guest lectured in courses at Columbia, Harvard and Tufts Universities. 

I'm also active in community affairs, serving as co-president of the Columbia Business School Alumni Club of Boston as well as on the Product Stewardship Institute Advisory Council.

I hold a BA from Princeton University and an MBA from Columbia Business School.  Prior to Columbia, I worked as a strategy consultant to Fortune 500 clients, and also started and sold a sportswear and marketing firm.
