Ron Adams

President and Founder

Our fearless leader and cruise director, Ron left the corporate world to start Engage in 2011.  Launching your own company isn’t as glamorous as told but he sure does wear a lot of titles:  President, Director of IT, Waste Management Associate, Janitor, Lunch Lady, and yes, employee with the longest tenure.

Prior to launching Engage, Ron was training to become a professional softball player. Actually, not really, but Ron did spend time working with well-respected print and digital media companies, such as The Philadelphia Inquirer, Tribune, and Knight-Ridder. Be sure to ask him about his early career stint as a “garmento” with Perry Ellis, Fila USA, and Macy’s.  Creating marketing campaigns always feels better outfitted in fine Italian tennis wear!

In 2006, Ron left Florida for Philadelphia (yeah, we know—what was he thinking?) all to build a home with his wife, Debbie, and their three kids.  While he loves Philly, let’s just say a “Florida satellite office” is probably in the future for Engage.

Sean Anderer

Vice President of Sales

Sean oversees our agency partnerships. He possesses a supernatural ability to seek out and develop relationships with some of the most talented agencies around. We think it probably has something to do with his experience, working in media for over two decades. 

Building relationships isn’t the only thing in which he excels; he’s also pretty darn good at keeping clients happy. How you ask…simple! He listens to our clients and runs smart, well-executed, data-supported, tirelessly optimized, successful campaigns (whoa, that was a mouthful). We encourage you to get to know Sean; we think you’ll really like (working with) him.

When not working (we still aren’t sure when that is), he loves to spend time with his family and attend his kids’ sports and professional sporting events.

Christina Celletti-Combs

Client Success Manager

Christina is a Rowan University graduate with a B.S. in Marketing. While at Rowan, she honed in on her time management skills as Rowan’s Advertising Club VP and being an engaged member of the AMA, all while working a full-time job and maintaining Dean’s list.

At Engage, Christina works closely with Ron/Sean to ensure that all projects stay on track and that clients have communication with our team to adjust to their needs. She is consistently working to develop and manage digital marketing strategies with our clients and helping them achieve their business goals.

When not answering emails or on back-to-back-to-back-to-back client calls (does that even exist?), Christina loves to keep herself active. This consists of early morning gym visits, beach trips, weekend hikes, and spending time with family, friends, and Ziggy and Zoey, her rescue dogs.

Gina Villecco

Client Success Specialist

Gina brings her upbeat personality to everything and everyone! She graduated from Temple University with a BA in Strategic Communications, Spanish, and French. Prior to Engage, she worked on all things marketing and advertising in the telecom industry, while also spending time volunteering for the New Jersey Wireless Association (NJWA) in many different ways as the youngest person ever to be elected to the Board!

At Engage, Gina collaborates with all departments to make sure the clients are on track to meet their goals. She stays updated on digital marketing strategies that can assist our clients to stay ahead of their competition. 

When not at work, Gina is learning Swedish and Italian, planning her next vacation around the world, playing video games, reading, writing, baking, or practicing yoga. But, let’s be honest, she’s probably just cuddling her cats or sleeping on the couch!

2023-DeannaProcessed with VSCO with a4 preset

Deanna Myers

Client Success Specialist

Deanna graduated from Rutgers and originally joined Engage as an Account Coordinator. Her eagerness to learn and adapt quickly to change is why she is now on our client success team!

At Engage, her sunny personality is just one of the reasons she has successfully assisted fellow employees within all of our departments. She loves to be challenged and learn new things. 

When not at work, Deanna loves to see live music and travel. Her adventurous spirit has led her to hope that after Ron adds a Florida satellite office, a London one will be soon behind (big dreams!).

Kate 2IMG-0010

Kate Lange

Senior Director of Media

After 10 years at Comcast, slaying multi-million-dollar national and regional advertising campaigns, Kate joined Engage. Not only is Kate impressively good at strategizing and building campaigns, but she’s also one heck of a negotiator (just try playing Monopoly with her).

From advertising agencies to corporations, Kate has worked on all types of campaigns, big and small, with easy solutions and strategy challenges. The industries she has created media campaigns for range from casinos, auto dealers, professional sports teams, healthcare, family-owned businesses, major corporations, and much more.

When she isn’t working, this mom of twin boys and two large dogs has mastered juggling to get it all done. From work to family to volunteer work, Kate has it all — but don’t ask her to actually juggle, that’s one thing she hasn’t mastered.

Sydney Maroney

Media Coordinator 

Sydney joined our team after graduating from Saint Joseph’s University with a BS in Marketing and minors in Art and Graphic Design. Her eagerness to dive into challenges head-first and learn new things makes her a perfect fit.  

At Engage she works closely with our Media and Client Services teams to support marketing initiatives, execute day-to-day tasks, and keep track of the nitty-gritty details of marketing campaigns! Working at Engage Media gives her the opportunity to exercise both the analytical and creative sides of her brain, which is why she believes marketing is her perfect fit!

When she’s away from the office, there’s a good chance that Sydney is at Bethany Beach in Delaware with friends and family or spoiling her sweet, mini golden doodle! If Sydney is not relaxing on the beach, she also enjoys photography, açaí bowls, and supporting Philly sports teams!

2023-Alyssa-DSC_6130

Alyssa Wachs

Ad Operations Manager

Alyssa joined the Engage team as a marketing intern, where she set the tone for excellence in our interns.  She loved it so much that she later became a member of our Ad Ops team once she completed her marketing and IT degree from Salisbury University.  

At Engage, Alyssa specializes in campaign optimization and analysis across many platforms and is one of our go-to people for all things Google. She is our Ad Ops Queen and you can often hear her name being called throughout the office!

When Alyssa isn’t crushing campaigns, she spends her free time with her friends, family, and adorable pups. She also enjoys live music and going to sporting events.

Ellen Dubs

Ad Operations Specialist

Ellen joined the Ad Operations team with a B.S. in Marketing and Economics from the University of Delaware. Through college, she studied digital marketing, content creation, and advertising while serving as a social media manager and instructor for the university Yoga Club. 

At Engage, Ellen is eager to bring her passion and creativity to the team! Her attention to detail is a perfect fit for the team where a sharp eye can help make a campaign soar.

When Ellen isn’t at work scouring analytics, she enjoys crocheting, running, and sharing yoga with anyone who will try it. She also loves artisanal coffee (her first job was as a barista, but she can spell your name right) and cuddling with her cat, Pat.

2023-StefenStefen-&-Gromit

Stefen Wojnarowski

Creative Director

Stefen grew up with all things Media, literally Media PA! He has over two decades of advertising agency experience working for the likes of Foote Cone Belding and Saatchi & Saatchi among others. He developed creative advertising campaigns for a wide range of global and local brands such as Comcast, Verizon, Macy’s, Izod Golf Wear, X-Acto Brands, Pennsylvania Lottery, Wawa Food Markets, The Franklin Institute Museum, Target, General Motors, The Simpsons Movie, Phillies MLB, and Jewelers of America. Phew…and that isn’t all of them!

At Engage, he is our brand marketing development guru. His creativity and ideas help him to think fast, work fast, not to mention he loves to dig in to find a creative solution to any problem. He is happy to talk, text, email, or whatever is needed to get the job done!

When not at work, he continues to be creative with various interests. He would be happy to share some really cool photos from the Highlands of Scotland if you ask! Oh and something cool - his parents ended up with Dick Clark’s old phone number when they moved to Media after Clark moved to LA (imagine the people calling that number)!

zoe goldberg headshotheadshot

Zoë Goldberg

Graphic Design Specialist

Zoe joined us as a recent graduate of Thomas Jefferson University. Initially, she was hired as a part-time graphic designer to develop our new website. So, if you’re reading this and don’t like our new site — you know who to blame! 

Zoe proved immediately how valuable she is to the team, and now she is our full-time Graphic Design Specialist and works with our external and internal clients to make creative ideas come to life.

When Zoe isn’t designing amazing graphics, she also enjoys creative writing (she has written and illustrated 3 children’s books!), hanging out with her close-knit family and friends, and traveling the world. We are so lucky to have her with us! 

kirsten headshotIMG_4517

Kirsten Furey

Social Media Manager

Kirsten brings over 8 years of social media marketing and content creation experience to Engage and leads our social media team. When she walked in the door, she was already running with wonderful ideas and immediately became an integral part of our Engage team.

At Engage, she encourages the social media team to brain-storm and be creative to make sure we are looking at all aspects of clients’ social media management. When Kirsten sees a great opportunity for a client, a post or video is on their platform in a flash, just like magic! 

When she isn't updating creative or looking over KPIs, you can find her watching Bravo or baking or cooking or ALL 3!

Julia Stokes

Social Media Specialist

Julia joined the Engage team as an intern in on the social media team. After graduating with a B.S. in Communications Studies from Saint Joseph’s University, she continued the tradition Alyssa set with a long-term internship turned into a full-time position. 

At Engage, Julia specializes in creative concepts and strategic planning for organic social campaigns as well as content creation and development. She is also excited to jump in and learn new things to make sure our clients’ social media stays fresh!

When Julia isn’t researching new social media trends or making content for her own personal platforms (where she has accumulated over 2.8 million likes!), she enjoys traveling and spending time with her friends and family.

Lynne Cona

Social Media Marketing Associate

Lynne joined Engage to follow her love of using social media to help people stay updated and informed. With a background in Business/Marketing from Drexel, jobs spent in administration, event planning, MANY volunteer positions for activities in her kids’ lives, and being a volunteer for her sorority, it was easy to jump into a position where things change daily. 

At Engage, she has been somewhat of a utility player and has helped out with almost all of the internal teams. She produces our newsletter and works on the social media team, but she loves to lend a hand wherever needed. 

When not at work, she still volunteers! Although she doesn’t live in the city, Lynne loves all things Philadelphia and enjoys spending time with family and friends, Nico (the fluffy Australian-Shepard family dog), being a self-proclaimed foodie, watching her favorite shows, and reading.

2023-JenniferDSC_6149

Jennifer Weipz

Finance Manager 

Jennifer is an alumna of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and has extensive finance and marketing experience which spans across sports: NBA, MLB, NFL, Sports Illustrated, the MS Society in Philadelphia overseeing the largest Bike Tour in the country, and in restaurants as the Head of HR and Finance.

At Engage, she is our sleuth of finance. She collaborates on all invoicing, AR, AP, budgets, etc. If there are numbers involved, so is Jenn!

When not at work, Jenn is a mom to 4 boys, the oldest getting ready to graduate from Penn State (WE ARE…). She loves watching her boys play sports (often found in camping seats at baseball games and track meets), and she also enjoys spending time with her family or running — her passion, where she has completed 3 marathons…so far!
