Client Services Manager Mark Walters has been appointed COO and joins the other four board members; Kevin Brown CEO, Peter Loveday CTO, Elton Hopkins CFO and Andrew Totten non executive Director.

“Mark’s appointment compliments and balances Digital Window by bringing a commercial element to a previously technology based board.” Said Kevin Brown, CEO of Digital Window.

Affiliate Window’s senior level promotions include; Head of Sales Mathew Downs is now Sales and Marketing Director, Anthony Clements has taken the role of Manager of key accounts, replacing Adam Ross who has been promoted to Client Services Director. Kevin Edwards, previously senior key account manger, is now Head of Affiliate Channel, and Julie Wood who was key accounts manager is now Head of merchant partnerships.

“2006 has been the most fantastic year for Affiliate Window since launch. It’s brilliant to be a successful company and it's the people at Digital Window that will ensure this continues. We’ve retained our staff by growing and promoting organically. By recruiting new people into the industry and training them ourselves we have continued to deliver the highest standard of client service. “ Said Brown. “Our performance year to date has been even stronger. Client churn is at it lowest ever and our goal in 2007 is to continue to lead the UK affiliate market with innovation and service as well as double our staff levels.”

As a direct result of this strategy, Digital Window has recently secured a host of the UK’s leading retailers, many on an exclusive basis.

Notable wins either from high profile moves from other networks, new wins, and consolidation to Affiliate Window include; Toys R Us, Next, Body Shop, B&Q, E2Save, Robert Dyas, Majestic, Early Learning Centre, and Comet.

This success has in turn led to rapid year on year growth of 115% per annum, staff numbers have increased from 30 to over 50 in the last 12 months and are set to double by the end of 2007, and yearly revenues are forecast to reach £20m by mid-2007.

“Affiliate Marketing has become a ‘must have’ for any business serious about growing its online revenues. Our achievements have come as a result of establishing a highly ethical stance, allowing us to secure more brands and drive true incremental growth. “ Ended Brown.
