ValueClick Europe’s Commission Junction division, one of the leading affiliate marketing companies in Europe, announces the appointment of Colin Elms as its first European Client Development Director.

His arrival follows that of Pablo Gravier who joined as European Sales Director in June this year. Colin started on 3 September and will work closely with Pablo as well as the sales and the account management teams in France, UK, Germany and the Nordic region to develop and maintain senior level client contact with advertisers, agencies and affiliates and other partners.

Colin is an experienced new media director with commercial track record showing success across a number of sectors including mobile, online and IPTV. Colin arrives from 365 Media Group where he was Director of the advertising, sponsorship, e-commerce and affiliate functions.

Before that Colin was Head of, where he led a team responsible for re-designing the site following the Granada and Carlton merger. Colin previously held senior media sales, account management and operations positions at Granada Media.

Carl White, CEO, ValueClick Europe said, “At Commission Junction we have demonstrated huge growth right across Europe this year, and we are investing in further development with this senior appointment.

We are the number one company in affiliate marketing in the US and our goal is to be number one in this space in Europe by the end of 2008. Colin has operated at the most senior levels within digital media and his expertise - along with Pablo’s - will help us to build our pan-European solutions for major brands.”

Commenting on his new role, Colin Elms said, “Online continues to demonstrate to brands that it is the most accountable medium of choice for advertising. Commission Junction’s continued investment in solutions and services for affiliate marketing ensures that customers are able to optimise every element of their global campaign strategy. I have enjoyed joining the Commission Junction team that has been developing tailored solutions to maximise their client’s campaign objectives.”
