Jay Binkowitz

I have enjoyed a 40 + year journey in our great industry and have seen and experienced lots of changes.

Over the last 20 years I dedicated my time and resources to developing lectures and workshops as well as numerous articles and videos focusing on practice management for independents as well as providing industry wide consulting services.

In 2006 from American Eyecare, our practice in Astoria Queens NY, Dr. Stadlen and I founded the Gateway Professional Network (GPN) and later its software platform, EDGEPro. We were the first practice level analytics resource in the industry and ultimately became one of the industries largest onsite interactive consulting companies.

Through GPN we focused on developing support to strengthen independent practitioners with new business management tools and processes.

In 2017 Dr. Ben Gaddie and I founded Total Eyecare Partners that later merged and became Keplr Vision. I currently serve as the EVP Professional Relations for Keplr Vision.

My wife and I are proud supporters of the Pan Mass Challenge raising money to support Pediatric Brain Cancer research in collaboration with the Dana Farber Cancer Institute and the Sunflowers for Life Fund.

It has always been my passion to pay it forward both in business and in my personal life. I am proud to have launched the Gloria House Foundation as a non-profit organization providing support and funding for local and global projects specifically related to health, education, development and safe environments for those in need or at risk.

My wife Bettina and I are reside in Charleston SC since 2018, and have always enjoyed our love and appreciation for international travel and great food experiences. Scuba diving, life’s boundless experiences and the blessing of sharing my journey with extraordinary people has always been my driving force.
