What Industry Experts Are Saying

“The Longevity Economy, ‘the sum of all economic activity serving the needs of Americans over 50,’ is responsible for at least $7.1 trillion in economic activity every year.”

Jody Holtzman, Senior Vice President, AARP

“Mary Furlong has had a profound impact on Link•age. Mary‘s ”What’s Next“ and ”Boomer Venture“ meetings have been invaluable in helping shape our company‘s strategy and focus. We truly look forward to expanding our relationship with Mary and her organization. I would highly recommend that anyone interested in working with Boomers seek to develop a relationship with MFA!”

Scott Collins, President and CEO, Link-age

“If you are involved in marketing products or services to baby boomers, you should absolutely be working with Mary Furlong. Mary has an amazing network, and is the best person I‘ve ever met at connecting people who can help each other. I’ve attended her Boomer Business Summit for the past three years, and have left every conference with at least one new partner and at least one new customer.”

Andy Cohen, Founder and CEO,

Our Collaboration With The American Society on Aging
