David Adelman

OCD founder and ceo

David originally studied chemistry and biology in college. But he found that developing marketing strategies was less volatile than mixing chemical compounds, so he switched his emphasis to media and marketing in the real world. He is the founder of OCD Media, and brings 30 years of ground breaking industry experience as a change agent and a pioneer in many areas. Prior to OCD he held senior management positions at Initiative Media, TN Media, DMB&B/MediaVest, Schering-Plough (in-house agency), McCann and Saatchi. David focuses on marketing science (not able to completely walk away from his scientific background) and developing customized analytical tools to yield greater media effectiveness. He is a MIN Sweet 16 2013 Honoree for Magazine Brand Leadership. He is often featured as a panelist or keynote speaker at industry events and his position papers/thought pieces are frequently published in key marketing/media trade journals. David teaches graduate level Integrated Marketing at NYU. If he’s not at his desk check the local golf course.

Tom Stolfi

Senior vice president, management director

Since Tom’s career in showbiz was halted by a difficulty in finding an audience he’s focused his life on helping marketers find their right audience. Tom is a 30 year veteran in media planning and buying management. He’s won awards—not Oscars or Tony’s—but an Effie, a Media Plan of The Year and three consecutive “Strategic Vendor Of The Year Awards” for client service on Outback. Tom still loves an audience, which you’ll see when you meet him and he practices his schtick as an Adjunct Professor at NYU teaching Graduate Level Integrated Marketing and Media Planning and Buying. All joking aside, Tom is an accomplished media professional who you want working on your behalf. He’s held senior management positions at SFM, MPG, KSL Media and Mindshare. There’s not a category he hasn’t worked in. Actually, there’s not a category he hasn’t excelled in. Tom is always the first one in the office every morning. Try calling him at 7:30.

Sarah Adelman

Manager of Programmatic Solutions

 

Growing up in a marketing family--Mom's an artist, Dad is a quant--Sarah had no choice but to follow in her parent's footsteps. She started her career at OCD doing research and analytics focusing on competitive intelligence and studying consumer insights ranging from purchasing habits, media usage and how consumers differ psychographically.  Being left-handed is an asset for her here. Something about an antipodal paw. We're not sure what it means, but she does love animals. In fact OCD has a very high ratio of lefties, Indexing at 250 to the total population...We had to throw a number in here somewhere.

Sarah also leads the programmatic buying team and oversees campaign maintenance on Prospero, our programmatic digital platform. Sarah is on the Platform multiple times a day monitoring and optimizing all of OCD Media’s mobile, video, and digital campaigns.

Hermes

the office mascot

Hermes joined OCD Media in March of 2014 straight out of a litter of five in which he was the only male and what a hunk he is. Hermes keeps the vermin population and stress levels to a minimum. He spends most of his time in the lunchroom (does it show?) and can occasionally be found napping on the couch between meetings. He's somewhat quiet and loves to have his belly rubbed.
