About the Author

Christian J. Farber is an Author, Businessman, and a Real People Person

With an extensive background in marketing and sales, Chris specializes in business growth and management. In addition to leading many successful teams and performing transformative work, he also has experience operating in both large corporations, as well as start-up companies. By focusing on allowing people to perform without pressure or interference, Chris has established a long-time reputation for the powerful teams he has built at businesses such as State Street Bank and Albridge Solutions. During his time at Albridge, Chris was an early employee and helped lead the company’s dramatic growth. Albridge was acquired by PNC Bank in 2008 for more than $300 million and is now a unit of The Bank of New York.

After having served a rewarding corporate career, Chris has been enjoying retirement at the Jersey Shore with his wife Susan and their three sons. In retirement, his energy and enthusiasm now goes toward giving back to people in ways that are near to his heart. As a prostate cancer survivor, Chris is now dedicated to educating men about the disease and providing consolation, support, and advice through his writing and his established community on Facebook, Whats Your PSA?.

For me, life is about creating experiences for others and consuming experiences of others.

After the loss of his parents in 2019, Chris was embroiled in the nightmare of cleaning out his childhood home. He promised his parents he would place the items they collected from around the world with people who really desired them. He recognized the potential to use this as a vehicle to raise money for charity. Chris used the skills he acquired from his business background to launch a successful business where the proceeds are directed toward another cause: helping a family friend who lost her daughter educate young women about the risks of Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS). Working together with the family, Chris donates some of the profits from his eBay work and soon-to-be eCommerce store, Junk in the Trunk, to the family’s mission to share their story and educate women everywhere about TSS.

 

Through his efforts, Chris has raised more than $100,000 to support charities and causes dear to his heart.

Chris also continues to work as a freelance writer and is always interested in a challenge. You can read Chris’ work online on LinkedInThrive Global, Huffington Post, and Good Men Project.
