KFN welcomes new Advisory Board member David Geithner. David was until recently the Chief Financial Officer for Condé Nast, a company with over $1billion in revenue and 3,000 employees. He led the company’s financial performance and strategic planning process, transforming the business through diversification of revenue streams and cost reductions. "I'm looking forward to taking advantage of the programs and services offered by KFN and giving back to the Kellogg Community in a more significant way," he said.
Before joining Condé Nast, David had a distinguished career at Time, Inc. He was the Executive Vice President of Time Inc. and President of the company’s Entertainment Group. As EVP, David drove financial and operating performance for the company’s largest and most profitable business unit, with over $1 billion in revenue and 800 employees nationwide and a portfolio of iconic media brands that included People, Entertainment Weekly, InStyle, People en Español, StyleWatch and Essence.
