New York, NY – March 5, 2020 – Extreme Reach today announced that company veteran, Kevin Crummy, and long-time ad tech sales leader, Erik Schear, will lead the organization’s national sales team, both as Vice President of Sales, reporting to Chief Revenue Officer, Maegan Buckler. In addition, Allen Nelson has joined the team from Comcast AdDelivery as a Los Angeles-based sales director.

Kevin Crummy joined ER in 2011 as regional sales manager, quickly growing his client list and identifying new areas of opportunity for the business. Since 2015 he has served as director of sales, managing a team and leading strategy for the political category, a rapidly growing vertical for the company.

Prior to Extreme Reach, Crummy spent eight years at Hula Media Exchange as an account executive and client services manager.
Erik Schear is an accomplished digital video sales executive with experience driving revenue growth for digital, startup, emerging, traditional and mature businesses. He was most recently vice president of sales at Eyeview, a video-focused ad tech company, where he spent eight years in increasingly senior sales roles and was instrumental in increasing revenue, raising venture capital, helping to build a positive company culture and managing a nationwide team. Prior to that, Schear held senior sales roles at Tremor Video over a period of five years. In addition to his leadership skills, he brings deep client relationships across a wide range of advertising categories.
Allen Nelson spent the last six years as sales lead for Comcast AdDelivery on the west coast. He is a known and respected leader in TV ad delivery and has spent his career in media and technology. Prior to Comcast, Nelson led the sales team for the western region at DG, where he spent eight years helping to grow the business.
