SAN FRANCISCO – Grant Media, LLC, the owner of the GalaxySearch.com and Sex.com search engines, announced today that it has expanded its management team to better serve its customers.
Danny Susantin joined the Company to manage the three-person accounting department, as he finishes his MBA at San Francisco State University in electronic commerce.
Rich Rutherford, who formerly started and managed the sales team at AutoTrader.com and Click Magazine, is Grant Media’s first head of the ten-person sales and marketing team. Rich has 12 years of sales and advertising experience, having worked in online advertising with NexChange Inc. Christopher Levine, an original engineer at Flycast Communications, joined the Company to spearhead the five-person development department. Mike Ulliman was appointed to Grant Media’s first manager of traffic, where his 7 years of sales and business development experience will build the Company’s Internet traffic offerings.
With the addition of these business leaders to Grant Media’s management team, the Company can more effectively and readily deliver its products and services to customers. Grant Media is growing at a fast pace and a strong staff alignment was the next logical step.
The Company’s former COO, Steve Klopf, has resigned effective May 1st, 2004.
