Dave founded Monetise as a means of providing online advertisers with a cost-effective performance marketing service.
Today, Monetise is recognised as the UK’s foremost performance marketing and lead generation company. With over a decade’s experience in digital marketing, Dave has used his expertise to develop the network, whilst helping generate leads for various blue-chip clients, generating quality traffic through media buying, SEO, online PR, PPC management and social media.
When Dave isn’t trying to avoid his coffee round (and yes – we built an app for that), he enjoys Monty Python, playing guitar like a rockstar, quaffing real ales and travelling.
James has been a part of Monetise since the very beginning, from its inception as a small affiliate network to a globally recognised performance marketing and lead generation company. Now with more than a decade in experience providing proactive solutions to advertisers, affiliates and brands, James continues to take pleasure in growing businesses and seeing new innovations succeed.
Instagram takes up 35% of James’ iPhone consumption, with some time being sacrificed as a devoted husband and father of three. Ridiculously organised verging on obsessive, a keen explorer, beer fanatic, coffee enthusiast and a Converse fan.
Ricky has served as our Senior Publisher Manager since November 2010. Before that time, he started in SEO (after graduating in Information Management) and naturally broadened his work with digital marketing. As Senior Publisher Manager, Ricky is responsible for overseeing the network and establishing key partnerships – so he really likes to get to know all of our publishers inside out.
Avid sports enthusiast Ricky counterbalances his macho side with a geeky love of all things digital, and can often be found with a million browser tabs open as he tries to balance publisher support with world domination.
Before joining the Monetise team, James plied his trade in the world of social media, managing accounts for local, national and international clients. He also has journalism experience at BBC Radio Derby and Channel M in Manchester.
Now turning his attentions to affiliate marketing, James loves all things data, and loves getting stuck into a good old Excel spreadsheet. James is a member of the publisher management team, and chief pistachio nut eater.
His great love is football, especially Manchester United. But hey, nobody’s perfect.
Prior to joining the Monetise team, Phill worked in digital marketing and specialised in generating quality traffic for clients. Now as Publisher Manager for Monetise, Phill is responsible for optimising publisher activity and assisting our staff with possible opportunities for improving CPA goals and positive ROI across the network.
Affectionately known as “Dangermouse”, Phill is a real-life superhero in the world of digital marketing whose only weakness is gluten. But he makes up for that with his awesome racket sports skills and powers of data analysis.
Before joining Monetise, Clive worked in finance, overseeing client payments and customer-value assessments. This kind of attention to detail has served him well at Monetise, where monitoring all leads passed through the network and ensuring quality consistency is an important part of being UK Business Development Coordinator.
Strangely loves anything data orientated. If there is a report that needs analysing, Clive will be there to identify the trends! After a day’s work, Clive loves to cook and can never resist the taste of roast chicken (something he can eat almost every day and still love the taste of).
Katie serves as Partnerships Manager at Monetise, where sourcing new offers and promotions is a major part of her role. With a background in marketing, and a keen passion for seeing brands and businesses succeed, Katie is an expert when it comes to putting affiliates together with the right advertisers and promotions.
As well as being the go-to-girl for publishers, Katie also balances motherhood and homemaking with a busy social calendar. When she’s not spending quality time with her little daughter, she loves nothing more than to cook some of her favourite Polish foods.
Jennifer is our Partnerships Manager and joined us fresh out of university after completing her English degree. With a background in journalism and blogging to boot, Jen has a keen eye for detail and considers herself a bit of a perfectionist. Here at Monetise, Jen works with advertisers to source great offers and is always on the look out for fresh ideas to boost traffic.
Away from the desk, Jen is partial to feelings of ‘wanderlust’ and likes to make a dent in her long list of places she’d like to travel to. Disneyland is a frequent destination on Jen’s list as she’s also a film fan with a soft spot for all things Disney.
Before joining Monetise in 2014, Lee worked as content writer for digital marketing firm Webtistic LTD and various online and print communications. Now he is responsible for managing and creating informative articles, blogs and white paper documents on our website.
Word obsessive Lee consumes books avariciously (see, that’s an unusual word). He’s also partial to anything that sustains his thirst for entertainment and useless knowledge, and rarely goes out in the daylight unless he needs to.
With over a decade of experience working for a number of high-turnover banks and businesses, Kellie now serves as Finance Manager here at Monetise, overseeing payments from advertisers and ensuring our affiliates get paid.
Number-cruncher Kellie isn’t so concerned with the figures when it comes to spending her own money. She has a serious shoe buying addiction. Although she does put them to good use on the running track and enjoys entering races in her free time.
Darren’s long and illustrious career to date spans 25 years in accountancy in both public and private sectors working for a variety of companies and gaining invaluable experience along the way. His role is to oversee financial progress and to work internally to streamline the financial processes of the company.
Darren is a a fun loving family guy with 2 young children, keen runner and swimmer, supporter of Derby County and armchair fan of most other sports. He enjoys weekends away and family holidays in sunny climates whenever he’s not counting beans.
Marketing graduate Josh joined Monetise as Publisher Manager in 2015 and has since become an integral member of the team. He is responsible for assisting publishers across the network to improve performance, as well as provide guidance and support when needed.
Knowing quite a bit about the importance of brand, Josh has chosen to stand out from the crowd by growing taller than everybody else, something he attributes to eating only rice and chicken everyday. He’s keen on sport but also dabbles in the geekier side of things when no one is looking, reading comic books in the back of his closet.
