DMA List and Database Council to Honor ALC's Fran Green with 2007 List Leader of the Year Award
June 6, 2007 — DMA’s List and Database Council is pleased to announce that Fran Green, president of Data Management for American List Counsel, Inc. (ALC), will be the recipient of the DMA List Leader of the Year Award for 2007.
The award, which recognizes outstanding contributions to the list and database industry, will be presented at the List Leader of the Year Awards Dinner on Wednesday, August 1, at the New York Marriott Marquis Times Square. The awards dinner follows Fast Forward 2007, the cutting-edge executive forum for list professionals, which also takes place all day August 1. Fast Forward 2007 and the List Leader awards dinner conveniently precede List Day 2007, “List Day and Beyond,” to be held August 2 at the Marriott Marquis.
“The criteria for choosing a List Leader of the Year include service to our industry, education, mentoring, and innovation - and Fran Green clearly satisfies them all,” said Stefanie Pont, managing partner of Pont Media Direct, and chair of the DMA List and Database Council. “Over the years, Fran has proven herself to be not only an industry leader, but a personal mentor to many in our industry as well, and has stepped forward to address the challenges that direct marketing faces today. The DMA List and Database Council is pleased to honor Fran, who embodies all of the skills and ideals of a true List Leader.”
An active member of the direct marketing community for more than 25 years, Green was the architect of ALC's unique approach to revenue maximization - employing extensive analysis and research, modeling, creative marketing, and selling strategies to consistently exceed expectations. Under her leadership, ALC’s Data Management division has grown into an industry leader.
In order to foster strong relations between ALC’s list owners and the brokerage community, Green also developed the “For Brokers Only” luncheon in 1996 - now the industry’s premier event for brokers. In addition, she spearheaded Fast Forward, a conference for senior marketing information executives, which is now included on the permanent roster of DMA events.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Green developed a portal for donations from the list industry, Direct Marketers for Katrina Relief, which raised thousands of dollars for Habitat for Humanity’s Operation Home Delivery.
Green is an active participant in industry organizations, and a frequent writer, speaker, and moderator. She is a member of the DMA List Leaders Group Board of Directors, and in that capacity is formulating a “best practices” approach to enhancing coverage of the list and database industry in the trade media.
Prior to her current position at ALC, Green was vice president and general manager of Zeller & Letica, a compilation and list brokerage firm.

2005 Deb Goldstein, President, IDG List Services
