    I nominate Amy Ely from Under Armour and Wade Tonkin from NFLShop. Both are outstanding managers in the industry with high impact brands. They are both working to clean up the programs and make sure niche affiliates have a fair and balanced shot at earning the most commissions.

    Marty Marion from Deluxe Business ... Handles a large volume of programs under one umbrella (B2B Affiliate Marketing Programs – Deluxe Corp Small Business Sales Affiliate Marketing) and smartly balances the needs of a large corporation with those of Affiliates to create a fair and growing program.
    Thanks,

    I nominate Char Polanosky of AllInclusiveMarketing, who manages the Kiyonna affiliate program. This account sat neglected for about a year, and she breathed love and life into it by wrassling an uncooperative datafeed into affiliate submission, revamping the entire creative directory and reaching out to true content affiliates in order to ensure real, incremental traffic. She is always there, at any time of day, for her affiliates, taking calls and night and even helping them with coding issues. Char is totally selfless, and what I would consider to be an unsung hero in this industry and I am so honored to be working with her. Thanks for taking care of business, Char!!

    I nominate Nick Bullard from AvantLink. He manages a few programs (Massey's Outfitters, Getzs and TriVillage) for us, and is doing an amazing job. He's come up with some very innovative ways to not only recruit new publishers, but activate them as well.

    We tasked the AM team to come up with new ways to ramp up content publishers, and Nick's idea (outlined here) has caught on and big time!

    Nick is also a personal friend. We worked together at the Peruvian Lodge in Alta at one point....so we have ruined lots of untracked powder snow together, and maybe even drank a beer or two together as well

    I second Brian's nomination of Marty Marion! Since brining the program in-house he's doubled the size of the program, been asked to speak at several Affiliate events and started the Twin Cities Meetup Group in Minneapolis - Affiliate Summit Twin Cities Meetup Group (Minneapolis, MN) - Meetup

    Looks like there was a setting to restrict new members from voting and iNet is working on it. Sorry for the frustration. Didn't seem to run into this last year. For the three on this thread try again as I upped your credentials.

    I've voted for Marty because of his dedication, respectfulness and caring development of our Deluxe affiliate program. He's the perfect person for his role as Affiliate Manager.

    Without question Marty Marion does the most service for his company than any other affiliate manager that we work with. His communication skills are unparalleled, his knowledge of the affiliate space is commanding, all while being one of the nicest people around. I can't think of anyone who deserves the recognition more than Marty.
