Anne Ashbey, Chief Marketing Officer for MDsave, the world’s first healthcare marketplace, has been accepted into the Forbes Communications Council, an invitation-only community for communications, public relations, public affairs and media relations executives.
Anne joins other Forbes Communications Council members, who are hand-selected to become part of a curated network of successful peers and get access to a variety of exclusive benefits and resources, including the opportunity to submit thought leadership articles and short tips on industry-related topics for publishing on Forbes.com.
Forbes Councils combines an innovative, high-touch approach to community management perfected by the team behind Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC) with the extensive resources and global reach of Forbes. As a result, Forbes Council members get access to the people, benefits and expertise they need to grow their businesses — and a dedicated member concierge who acts as an extension of their own team, providing personalized one-on-one support.
“I am thrilled to be part of the Forbes Communications Council, and to take part in such a well-respected forum in which to share ideas with other leaders in the field,” says Anne, an experienced leader in online marketing and the management and growth of e-retailing in the multi-channel business environment. Anne brings to the Council her expertise in email marketing, search engine marketing, affiliate marketing, and online user experience, as well as more than 25 years of experience in media and marketing.
“MDsave is pioneering a new way of purchasing healthcare,” Anne says, “and sharing thought leadership with the Forbes Communications Council is going to help us introduce new ways of thinking into the healthcare industry. We want to help people fix healthcare for themselves, and the Council will be a good place to start fostering these ideas.”
Scott Gerber, founder of Forbes Councils, says, “We are honored to welcome Anne into the community. Our mission with Forbes Councils is to curate successful professionals from every industry, creating a vetted, social capital-driven network that helps every member make an even greater impact on the business world.”
