Meet CA Founder + CEO Russ Gottesman

Russ Gottesman, Founder and CEO of Commuter Advertising, brings to CA an extensive background in entrepreneurship, media sales management and business strategy and development-skills that served him well when he founded the company in 2008.
A passionate commuter, Russ developed the idea for Commuter Advertising while on Chicago's 'L' subway system traveling home from a White Sox game. "What if a bus stop could be 'sponsored' by a local business? My wife and I were two of 100 hungry fans, riding past Chinatown. Why shouldn't a restaurant reach out with a simple message: 'The best dumplings in town at Chang's Restaurant, 50 feet from next stop'? We would have gotten off!"
Less than two years later, Russ had turned his vision into a reality. After launching CA in 2008, he led the company to enter ten markets in just five years while growing sales, championing strategy and developing a team of Account Directors. Under Russ's leadership, CA went on to win the 2008 DePaul New Venture Challenge, the 2010 University of Dayton Business Plan Competition, and the 2011 Soin Award for Innovation. In 2012, Russ was named Top 40 Under 40 by the Dayton Business Journal.
Russ holds an MBA from the DePaul University Kellstadt Graduate School of Business and a BA in Broadcast Journalism from Arizona State University. He has been featured in publications, including The New York Times and The Dayton Business Journal. Russ was the 2012 University of Dayton Crotty Center for Entrepreneurship Keynote Speaker, and a year later was named the Crotty Center Volunteer of the Year. He continues to speak around the country on topics including entrepreneurship, leadership, fundraising and company culture.
