Crush Ads CEO Brandon Rosen has been a dedicated mover and shaker in the internet marketing business for over ten years. When you want results, Brandon’s your guy. In fact, while Brandon self-admittedly would rather be at Miami Heat games than working, some of us have money on the fact that he’d actually rather be working than breathing. Full confession: we’ve secretly been looking for a killer therapist to handle his raging workaholism; however, we’re unsure there’s a licensed professional headshrinker who could take our captain on without ending up in lockdown himself. So here’s the thing you need to understand - Brandon and the team here at Crush Ads always outwork the competition, hands down. And we proudly pass those results on to you.
Married with two kids, a dog and a fish tank, President Dan Lansman started his career as a client manager for CIGNA, working on accounts like Starbucks, Delta Airlines, Shell Oil and Verizon. Dan left the exciting world of insurance twelve years ago to stake his claim in the internet marketing space, selling for Equifax. Since that time, he has worked for, bought, sold and started various types of marketing companies, including 1 Touch Marketing and Crush Ads. In addition to being our coach both in the office and on our company softball team (which currently holds first place in the league), you can find him coaching his eldest daughter’s soccer team full of six-year-olds, playing golf, or watching football games cheering on his alma mater, Florida State.

Sr Affiliate Manager
Senior Affiliate Manager Chris Calabro has been in the interactive marketing space since early 2008. As a Pepper Jam and Market Leverage alum, he’s worked on all sides of the affiliate marketing industry, but when he’s not utilizing the wealth of experience he has built up in affiliate management, you can probably find him blasting 311, playing softball or golf, watching his alma mater the Kansas Jayhawks, recklessly playing with sharp swords, and professing his undying love for all things Kenny Powers.
Daniel Simone started out as a marketing assistant in 2008 and quickly moved into sales. When he’s not focused on developing lasting relationships with advertisers in order to deliver consistent, high-quality lead sources, he’s probably jamming out on acoustic guitar, catching waves, weaving through highway traffic at 120 like Mario Andretti, showing off his skills as an amateur sommelier, drinking copious amounts of beer, or creating nouveau-American Italian dishes with a slight Southwestern twist.
Sr Advertising Manager
Gina De Franco got her start in the internet marketing industry here at Crush Ads a few years ago and has been crushing her competition ever since. When she’s not hard at work you can find her beaching it up, looking for new pets to bring home and add to her collection and rooting for her favorite team on the large screen every Sunday.
Sr Affiliate Manager
Senior Affiliate Manager Dan Colucci worked as an affiliate before joining us on the network side of things. Specializing in paid search and site monetization, Dan works with publishers who deal with all types of traffic. In his free time, he enjoys live music, networking, and a good glass of scotch. At his desk you can catch him listening to anything from Reggae to Punk Rock. A south Florida native, Dan loves the Miami Dolphins and Miami Heat.
Industry veteran, a graduate of UCF, and a native Floridian. Brandon is here to help uncover a strong chemistry between Crush’s Advertisers and many of his long standing Publisher relationships in the interactive space. Brandon loves to travel, from California wine country to the Colorado Rockies and any warm beach. He can be found locally in the sand on Deerfield Beach most weekends. Always rooting and smiling with the Miami Heat and agonizing from the Miami Dolphins losses. Enjoys live music, thrifting way before Macklemore made it cool, being a foodie, and a storm chaser at heart.
Jr. Account Manager
Linda Santacruz is a Junior Account Manager. She is in charge of setting up new offers and helping the Ad Managers with their day-to-day tasks. As she continues to familiarize herself with the business, Linda hopes to become a regular Ad Manager herself. When she’s not working, Linda loves writing, photography and learning new languages. She also loves going to beach, shopping and having movie nights. On the weekends, you can catch her sipping on white wine and eating sushi.
An eight year veteran of the online marketing industry, Kathy Sciortino started out working with Brandon as his assistant, learning the business, and is now part of the Crush Ads business development team. When she’s not hard at work in this fast paced environment, you can probably find her laughing and enjoying herself (sometimes cracking jokes followed by a chorus of crickets), hanging out with friends, watching football, and quoting her favorite movies.
International man of mystery.
Accounting Coordinator Nicole Gonzalez is the newest member of the Crush Ads team; however, she’s been working in the industry since April 2006. When this recent graduate of BBA Business Management isn’t busy counting beans for your payouts, you can find her cooking elaborate meals from scratch, practicing yoga, doing Taekwondo kickboxing, or dancing up a storm!
Sr Graphic Designer
When Don of Design Alex Brown isn’t busy creating an offer our pubs can’t refuse, he’s probably playing with the latest technology and gadgets or trying to keep it under wraps that he’s amazing at troubleshooting computer problems. (Sorry to let the cat out of the bag, Alex!) Not only has our Graphical Godfather and Photoshop Guru done work for clients such as Toyota, Disney, Volkswagen, Dunkin’ Donuts and Minor League Baseball, but the University of Alaska Fairbanks graduate is also singer/songwriter who just finished his first acoustic rock album!
Sr Web Developer
When Senior Web Developer Attila Fajta isn’t working on landing pages and lead capture and making sure that the in-house data management and CRM systems are running smoothly, you can catch him swimming, reading, playing tennis, and taking his four year old daughter to the zoo. Attila is also an avid traveler who has been to most of the states and dozens of countries around the world. His favorite destination so far has been Scotland, his least favorite is New Orleans, and he hopes to visit Australia and New Zealand someday.
Resident Peddler of Tchotchkes Mr. B can be found hanging out in our office on a daily basis, chilling out, eating our lunch, and making sure we are always fully stocked with Crush Ads swag.
