Seth Gerszberg, of *ecko unltd., to Lecture at FDU

Distinguished Entrepreneurial Lecture on May 4

Madison, NJ (April 7, 2005) - Seth Gerszberg, co-founder and president of Marc Ecko Enterprises, South River, NJ, will give the seventh annual Richard M. Clarke Distinguished Entrepreneurial Lecture at Fairleigh Dickinson University on Wednesday, May 4, 2005.

Gerszberg's lecture will be held in conjunction with the awards ceremony for the 2005 East Coast Collegiate Entrepreneurial Awards program. The finest undergraduate student entrepreneurs from New Jersey, New York, Connecticut and Delaware will be recognized in a program that is now in its eighth year. Both events are sponsored by the Rothman Institute of Entrepreneurial Studies at Fairleigh Dickinson.

As president, Gerszberg is responsible for business development and strategic planning that ensures the Company's limitless growth. With an insatiable appetite for success and a quick ability to learn, he has turned a modest T-shirt company into a $1 billion clothing and lifestyle empire.

Gerszberg, along with Head Designer Marc Ecko and Executive Vice President Marci Tapper, founded *ecko unltd. in 1993 as a T-shirt company with six popular graffiti-inspired shirts. Today, the urban fashion company continues to transcend the boundaries of traditional business with interests ranging from clothing to automobile rims and video game design and production.

With over 12 district lines of fashion and accessories, the company also publishes a bi-monthly urban and street-culture magazine, "Complex." Gerszberg has successfully transformed the *ecko unltd. vision into much more than a brand--it's a global lifestyle.

Gerszberg is dedicated to supporting a variety of charities, including personally overseeing and providing funding for a Ukrainian orphanage, Tikva Children's Home.

A reception begins at 6 p.m., followed by the awards at 6:45 p.m., and the lecture at 7:15 p.m. The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held in Lenfell Hall, The Mansion, FDU's College at Florham, Madison, NJ.
