18th AUGUST 2011, London: LinkShare, the affiliate marketing network, has significantly built on its already successful Advertising Services Team, moving to a new organisational structure to achieve its long term
company goals of business growth and sustained customer satisfaction.

In this move, Mumtaz Khamker and Anthony Quinn, who have a combined tenure at LinkShare UK of ten years, have been promoted to Directors of Advertiser Services. The new role will focus their energy, experience, and talent on ensuring that LinkShare’s Advertiser Services Team is equipped to maximise customer satisfaction, optimise revenue, and ensure the company is operating efficiently and effectively.

Over the years Mumtaz and Anthony have gained an in-depth knowledge of how LinkShare works, how to successfully grow a program, and how to deal with customers and their needs. They are ideally-suited to now share that knowledge with the Advertiser Services Team and help LinkShare UK grow market share as a result.

In addition, Penny Mather, who joined LinkShare UK in 2008 as the first Marketing Manager employed in London after the UK network launched in late 2006, has been promoted to Marketing Director. In her new role, Penny will be dedicated to expanding LinkShare’s UK presence and building its reputation in the UK e-commerce community, through advertising, PR and events.

“Our team at LinkShare is highly experienced, knowledgeable and talented,” said Liane Dietrich, Managing Director at LinkShare UK. “We’re building on the strong team we already have in place in order to keep up with customer demand and the ever-changing market we operate in.”
