    Honored for His Achivements

    Thirty years after graduating from Montclair State University, TeleBrands CEO and President AJ Khubani was honored with the university’s School of Business Distinguished Alumnus Award at the School of Business’s Convocation. The convocation is a pre-commencement ceremony to celebrate the achievements of the graduating School of Business students.
    University President Dr. Susan A. Cole and School of Business Dean Dr. E. LaBrent Chrite presented Khubani with the commendation in recognition of his professional accomplishments and service in support of the advancement and continued excellence of the University.
    “I received so much from my years at Montclair and am very touched by this recognition,” said Khubani. “The university offers endless opportunities to its graduates and I am proud to continue to be a part of the good work that they do.”
    Khubani launched Fairfield-based TeleBrands in 1983 while still attending Montclair State. TeleBrands has since grown into an award-winning global empire and a leader in the Direct Response Television (DRTV) industry. Though once exclusively sold through infomercial advertising, Khubani realized the true potential of bringing these once middle-of-the-night only infomercial products to retail. In 1987, TeleBrands was the first DRTV marketer to expand into bricks and mortar locations beginning with AmberVision Glasses. Khubani designed the iconic red “As Seen on TV” logo which has been a defining characteristic of the industry and has revolutionized the category in the retail sector. TeleBrands has launched more innovations than any other marketer in history, selling hundreds of millions of “As Seen on TV” brands including PedEgg, Stone Wave Microwave Cooker, Hurricane Spin Mop, Pocket Hose Ultra and many more. TeleBrands’ products are sold through major retail chains worldwide in over 120 different countries.
