Ken Godfrey
Director of Digital Marketing, North America
Philips

Ken Godfrey has been an innovator in the digital marketing space for 20 years, in the advertising industry at the advent of the Web itself, then for 13 years at IBM. He’s joined Philips this year to lead Digital Integration across the North American market, as Philips embarks on an ambitious digital transformation.

His 13 years at IBM started as the company’s first content strategist on the corporate User Experience Team. He managed IBM’s most high-value digital properties throughout his career there, including the IBM Home Page, Linux, Tivoli and Software Group. He and his teams were able to increase traffic and engagement significantly for each of these by following his robust, user-centered content and syndication strategy as well as many other innovations.

A writer by trade, he worked at a dozen NY Advertising Agencies, including Bozell, Poppe Tyson, Grey, Wonderman, K&B and Ayer as a copywriter, copy chief and creative director for 10 years before his time at IBM. For Ken, the user experience is as important to the success of content as it is to Web or application design or anything else. Content has to deliver on the customers’ expectations and focus on their needs.

Ken’s digital strategy is focused on ‘outside-in marketing’, using search keyword insight and social listening to identify what topics a site needs to be talking about, what content needs to be created, and the best words to use to attract searchers and deliver the content they need and expect.

Ken grew up in Flushing, NY graduated from Manhattan College and now lives in Westchester with his wife and 2 children.

New Paltz Resident Strikes Gold In Swimming

*** begin quote ***

When it comes to being at one with the water, New Paltz resident Dan Winfield is a natural.

Whether it was at a pond in his hometown of Tuxedo, New York or competing at the collegiate level at Manhattan College, swimming has always been the one constant that resonated in his life. Last month, this active passion led him to compete and medal in the 2014 Federation of International Aquatics (FINA) Masters’ Swimming World Championships in Montreal, Canada at the bright and flourishing age of 69.

*** and ***

After progressively completing both the 100-meter and 50-meter freestyle after the other events, the 200-meter individual medley was where Winfield struck liquid gold. The individual medley consists of meter swimming in each stroke for 50 yeards apiece.

Winfield began with the butterfly stroke, then progressed with the backstroke, front stroke and concluded with freestyle. After spending four long days of competing every day, Winfield medaled in the 200 Individual Medley event.

*** and ***

“Someone can be 95 years old and they’re swimming relatively fast with a very efficient stroke and you can just tell that they were athletes for decades,” Winfield said. “The body slows up and you don’t swim as quickly as you remember swimming as you were younger. [The championship] had people swimming and diving well up into their 80s and 90s and it was certainly impressive to watch.”

*** and ***

After medaling at the national swimming championship, Winfield has since recently accomplished another feat of athleticism at a local level: The Survival of the Shawangunk Triathalon. This past Sunday, Sept. 7, he and his wife Marianne completed this eight-stage triathalon consisting of biking 30 miles, running 18 miles and swimming nearly two miles. Winfield, the only male competitor in his age group, completed the race in just over seven hours.
