Jonathan's role will be to lead the continued UK growth of the world's most successful affiliate marketing company. He will also assist local managers across Europe to roll out clients' programmes.
The appointment heralds an aggressive phase of recruitment to satisfy the business' needs, with Jonathan appointing at least a further eight personnel to support Commission Junction in the UK over the next quarter.
