Straight Forward Media
Mission: Help clients achieve marketing success with a transparent and Straight Forward approach.
As the founder and CEO of Straight Forward Media, a full-service media company, David Weinstein strives to help clients grow their business via integrated marketing. Focused on objectives and budget, David creates strategies for success. Straight Forward Media has over 15 years of working with clients covering such categories as pharmaceuticals, financial, packaged goods, foot wear, retail, beauty and luxury goods.
Prior to starting Straight Forward Media, David cut his teeth at some of the top advertising agencies in New York City including Ogilvy & Mather, Mediacom and ZenithOptimida. He also spent time working as the in-house marketing and media planner/buyer for Altice Media Solutions, and Weatherbug.
David joined the Plainview-Old Bethpage Chamber of Commerce in 2016 and quickly became involved in various activities and committees. In May 2017 he was voted to the group’s board of directors. “I am happy to be on the board and look forward to many years of helping the chamber succeed and its members grow their businesses”.
Both born and raised in Plainview, David and his wife Lauren, moved back to the community in 2005. They have two children, Justin and Emily in the Plainview school system. David enjoys working locally here in Plainview, which gives him the flexibility to spend time with his family.
In addition to daily workouts at Lifetime Fitness, David has been conquering Tough Mudder courses in the Northeast since 2013 completing over 11 of them with more still planned to conquer. In addition, last year he added the Spartan races to his list of challenges. He has already competing in three and is going for his first Trifecta (all 3 races within a year) at the end of this year. David also loves playing old school arcade games so much that he now has an original Pacman arcade cocktail table in his den.
