Who Runs The Brains?

The Brains is run by co-founders Larry Kotch and Jonathan Lemer. They started the company over five years ago, to address a pressing need for more targeted, cost-effective, and results-driven digital marketing. Frustrated by their own experiences trying to secure affordable and effective digital marketing services, they founded The Brains to ensure that every small business with a big idea can compete on a global scale for online awareness.
