Keith Green is an accomplished marketing communications pro; dynamic speaker, storyteller, teacher and mentor; and the founder of Autism MVP.
From the hardwood of the NBA with the Philadelphia 76ers, to the asphalt racetracks of NASCAR with Richmond Raceway, to the inspiring stories behind the world’s superlatives with Guinness World Records, Keith Green has more than two decades of sports and entertainment-focused integrated marketing communications experience.
Keith is also an accomplished speaker, presenter and storyteller, having shared his experience at dozens of conferences and with many organizations, including Digital Marketing World Forum, SXSW, PRSA, PRSSA, ANA, Youth Marketing Summit, Brand Film Festival and many others.
In 2015, Keith expanded his PR, marketing, community relations and sales experience to include the role of a non-profit founder and leader when he formed Autism MVP Foundation . The all-volunteer non-profit, which was inspired by Keith’s son and the educators and therapists who have helped make a difference in his family’s life, is dedicated to increasing the number and quality of autism-focused educators. The foundation’s programs include a groundbreaking training program for teachers and paraprofessionals, and a scholarship initiative for graduate students who are committed to pursuing a career to improve educational, social and life skill outcomes for individuals who have autism. Both programs are currently affiliated with Monmouth University.
His experience working with universities also includes more than 10 years of experience as an adjunct faculty member. He has taught sports PR and marketing classes to graduate and undergraduate students at Virginia Commonwealth University, Virginia State University, Utah Valley University and University of Phoenix.
Keith is a proud, two-time graduate of Temple University where he sharpened his writing skills as an undergraduate journalism major. Three years after graduating and while working full-time for the Philadelphia 76ers, he returned to Temple and later received his M.Ed. in sports administration and recreation.
Keith lives in New Jersey with his wife Donna and their son, Gavin. When he's not cheering on his favorite Philadelphia sport teams, including his beloved Temple Owls, he can be found playing golf, cooking and spending time with his family on the New Jersey beaches.
