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.
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.
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.

Anna joined Monetise straight after finishing her degree at the University of Derby, studying Business Management and Popular Music Production. While studying at the university, she was working for a lovely Derbyshire brand of coffee shops where, as well as developing her barista skills she also organised their first live music event which attracted over 40 people.
Her role at Monetise is managing a pool of publishers and making sure they are very happy every single day! She loves to meet and speak with new people and trying to help wherever she can.
Creating music, singing and getting out & experiencing the world are her passions, and oh yeah, chocolate, plenty and plenty of chocolate.
Drew joined the Monetise team fresh out of university with a degree in Advertising, Marketing and PR. His role as a Publisher Manager allows him to build strong relationships with clients, and aid them in their business growth. The only thing he enjoys more than the social side of the job is the analytics and will happily create a spreadsheet for just about anything.
He is a big Liverpool fan and loves going to Anfield at any given opportunity. Drew and his better half, Kitty, purchased their first house in June 2017, and introduced Pippa the Jack Russell to the family soon after. He spends most weekends either playing football, walking Pip in the Peak District or having a tipple in his Fiancé’s parent’s ‘Man cave’ that her dad built in the garden!
Karolina is Monetise’s very own Little Miss Sunshine, with a fun and vibrant personality that brings a smile to everyone within a 50-mile radius.
When she’s not spending her spare time at music festivals and enjoying the smell of freshly-cut grass, Karolina can be found looking after advertisers and ensuring that only the best traffic is going through to each campaign.
If you fancy chatting lead gen for your business, or just a chin wag about Prince and Foo Fighters, then Karolina is your girl!
Harriet is one of our Partnership Managers. With a background in journalism and video editing she has a keen eye for attention for detail and considers herself quite the creative. At Monetise Harriet works with advertisers to source great offers and is always looking to expand the network.
When she’s not stuck into work, Harriet can usually be found outdoors. She is on a never ending quest to find the greatest sunset or view, that so far has taken her from the tops of ski slopes to the coast in Vietnam.
Before joining the Monetise team, Joe worked at a web design agency, managing and supporting accounts for their clients. He also has Digital Marketing experience after working in that department for the last 5 years.
Now turning his attentions to affiliate marketing, Joe loves all things technical, and likes to evaluate the elements behind the things you see. Joe is a member of the publisher management team.
Outside of work Joe likes to spend his time supporting his football team, Leicester City. He is also an experienced skiier after doing it for over 10 years, his speciality is slalom. Music is another one of his big interests.
