buy.at, the UK’s largest independent affiliate marketing network, has appointed Louise Green to the newly created role of Client Services Director. Joining from OMG’s Network, she will be responsible for directing client relationships with buy.at’s clients including John Lewis, T-Mobile and Thomas Cook.

Green spent three years at OMG where she grew the team from three staff to over thirty facilitating over 600% growth in turnover. She was instrumental in winning clients such as MBNA and subsequently growing the account through launches of all its affinity cards, and winning Barclays, Virgin Wines and other merchants. Her move to the larger network follows other senior appointments at buy.at including Peter Mycock, who joined as Sales Director from Experian, and Tyson Pearcey, who worked with Green at OMG from 2003 until 2006.

Kevin Cornils, CEO of buy.at explains, ‘The past twelve months has seen tremendous growth for buy.at. We have made a raft of senior hires, opened a London office, won many new clients and improved our relationships with many of the UK’s leading agencies. We need to ensure these clients and agencies continue to receive the best of breed client service which has always differentiated buy.at. Louise Green is well-placed to do this bringing an excellent understanding of the market, solid experience and good relationships to buy.at.’

Louise Green, Client Services Director at buy.at adds, ‘buy.at has a great client list across industry sectors, very good technology and excellent relationships with both affiliates and clients. It is the network which is leading the growth of affiliate marketing and the professionalisation of the industry and has a great team, which I am proud to join. I plan to use my market knowledge, combined with my client-side marketing experience across all channels, to support further growth for buy.at.’

Prior to joining OMG Green spent two years as marketing manager for Swinton Insurance where she managed traditional marketing including brand and above-the-line activity across numerous personal and business brands. She spent five years at Norwich Union Direct before that working as part of the team that launched and built the Direct proposition, including marketing it across all media.

In the past year buy.at has grown with new clients wins including Match.com, and Dial-a-Phone, overhauled its management area, recruited a new Chairman and CEO and was presented with an award for ‘Best Affiliate Advertising’.
