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, brewing and quaffing craft beers 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 Monetise, Freya worked in the hectic world of industrial recruitment. After one too many builder’s brews and deciding Hi-Viz yellow just wasn’t her colour, she transitioned into the world of affiliate marketing, equipped with business development skills and a digital marketing diploma.
In her spare time Freya is a travel fanatic who will jump on a plane at any opportunity she gets. When Freya’s not exploring new places, her other hobbies include; a strange obsession with crime novels, David Attenborough and baking both sweet and savoury goodies.
Sophie completed a Level 3 Digital Marketing Apprenticeship not long before joining Monetise where she’s now a bubbly addition to the Publisher Team. With her precious collection of stationary and colour co-ordinated notes at the ready, day to day she’s busy building and growing relationships with Affiliates and generally making sure everything is running smoothly!
Outside of the office, Sophie loves anything revolving around food & drink and her favourite combo of Nelly and Netflix (Nelly being her four legged companion). Sophie’s travelling bucket list is slowly being ticked off – but not as quickly as its being added to! Top of the list: Thailand, Tokyo & Alaska.
Before joining Monetise Jodie spent her time in the world of Health and Beauty at Boots developing new products for brands including Soap and Glory, Botanics, Champneys and all things Boots brand, from cotton wool to Christmas gifts! She has a wealth of experience managing brand partners and working collaboratively to grow their brands.
Outside of work Jodie is busy looking after her 2 young children and the weekend is full of football matches, dance performances and walking their four legged friend Bailey. Any spare time is spent running, doing yoga or planning her next interior design project.
Before joining Monetise, Doohan studied Sports Coaching at Sheffield Hallam University for three years. After completing his degree, the opportunity to join the Monetise team as a Publisher manager appeared. He knew it would be the perfect move, allowing him to showcase a range of skills & attributes developed over the years, whilst helping others advance in their marketing journey.
Outside of Monetise, Doohan loves all things sport. Football, golf, cricket, snooker, tennis, and pretty much anything else that requires a bat or ball to play. He has most recently taken up golf and is determined to learn everything there is to know about the game. Any spare time he gets outside of work and sport, he fills with long walks in the Peak District with his family or friends.
Before joining Monetise, Francesca completed her degree in Marketing and then took a bit of a different path to become a primary school teacher. After three fun years in the classroom, she decided it was time to take the valuable skills she gained teaching and apply them into the world of marketing.
In her free time, Francesca enjoys exploring new places (especially those with great places to eat), spending time with her horse and catching up with family and friends.
If not being dragged by her friends to Nando’s after successfully completing an escape room, Francesca also enjoys going to music events; her most recent one seeing Madness.
