Stephen H. Feinberg, an advertising executive who planned and oversaw the construction of thousands of bus shelters on NYC streets, died on Oct. 2, 2002 at his home in Manhattan. He was 55. He died of natural causes.
Mr. Feinberg established his reputation as a leader in the out-of-home advertising industry over the course of 25 years during which he held key positions at the NY Subways Advertising Company, Gannett Transit and Adshel, Inc. In the mid-70s, Mr. Feinberg joined the NY Subway Advertising Company as treasurer and chief financial officer. When the Gannett Outdoor Group acquired the NY Subways in 1988, he was promoted to executive vice president.
At Gannett Transit, Mr. Feinberg was given operating responsibility for the development of the NYC Bus Shelter Franchise and the NYC Subway Advertising programs. He pioneered construction and information management strategies that enabled the successful installation of over 2000 bus shelters in only 30 months, creating a welcome civic amenity while growing a multi-million dollar advertising medium.
In 1992, Mr. Feinberg left Gannett Transit for SHF Communications, Inc., an organization dedicated to making advertising opportunities out of street furniture. Four years later, More Group joined forces with Mr. Feinberg to create Adshel Inc. Under Mr. Feinberg's tenure as president, Adshel Inc. acquired the transit shelter rights in Washington, DC, which became the most financially successful street furniture franchise in the US. In July of 1998, the City of San Francisco selected Adshel as franchisee for the first news rack program in the US. In December of the same year, Adshel was awarded the new Urban Panel Advertising Franchise in NYC which developed and installed backlit advertisements for the railings of subway entrances.
Mr. Feinberg left Adshel in 1999 and, after working as an independent investor, recently became an investor in and chief executive officer of Titan Outdoor, a provider of outdoor advertising.
A native of Roslyn, Mr. Feinberg held graduate and undergraduate degrees from NYU. Donna, his wife of 33 years; two daughters, Alyssa Feinberg Knobel of Highland Park, IL, and Caryn Feinberg of NYC; son-in-law Jeremy Knobel; and granddaughter Heather Knobel, survive him.
Funeral services were held on Oct.4 at the I.J. Morris Funeral Home, Hempstead. The family asks that donations in Mr. Feinberg's name be made to: Rabbi Peter Knobel for the Beth Emet Soup Kitchen, 1224 Dempster Rd., Evanston, IL 60202 and to the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Research Center, Box E1275, York Ave., New York, NY 10021.
