As Chief Marketing Officer and Chief Operating Officer for Steiner Sports Marketing, Kelvin Joseph is at the intersection of Sports Marketing and Finance. A CPA, former CFO and business owner, Kelvin utilizes his extensive experience in business consulting to help companies from new startups to Fortune 500s (e.g. Oracle, and Morgan Stanley) monetize their marketing spend by determining what sports marketing strategy will benefit the company the most, providing access to the right athletes at the right time, negotiating contracts for the best deals, and measuring and analyzing results to ensure return on investment.

Richard L. Gelfond

Richard Gelfond is chief executive officer of IMAX Corporation, one of the world's leading entertainment technology companies. Under his leadership, IMAX has evolved from a niche purveyor of nature and science documentaries to a Hollywood movie force —both as high-tech exhibitor and a creative partner in the movie-making process.

IMAX has more than 1,226 theatres in 75 countries. 2017 films include The Fate of the Furious, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Dunkirk, IT and Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

With Gelfond at the helm, IMAX entered China more than 15 years ago just as the nation's entertainment, film and exhibition industry was developing. Growing as it did alongside the industry, IMAX has become a key part of the nation's movie-going culture. Today, China is IMAX's fastest-growing market with more than 400 theatres open and is embraced by audiences across the country as the best and most immersive way to see a film.

Gelfond is also leading IMAX through several strategic projects related to new business lines, including its recent foray into location-based virtual reality, IMAX VR, as well its investment in original content through a first-of-its-kind partnership with Marvel and ABC Television to premier Marvel's Inhumans exclusively in IMAX® theatres ahead of its network launch.

Gelfond, one of entertainment's longest-tenured executives, joined IMAX in 1994 as co-chairman after his firm, Cheviot Capital Advisors, bought the company. Gelfond previously served as an investment banker in mergers and acquisitions with Drexel Burnham Lambert.

Gelfond holds a BA from Stony Brook University and a law degree from Northwestern University.

Gelfond is a member of the Motion Picture Academy of Arts & Science. In 1996, Gelfond and investment partner Brad Wechsler received an Academy Award on behalf of IMAX for Scientific and Technical Achievement.
