Global affiliate network Awin has seen a vast amount of restructuring this past month.
After working at Awin for 16 years, Kevin Edwards stepped down from his role as Global Client Strategy Director to pursue new ventures. Edwards joined the Awin team back in 2006, when there were only 35 people in the company. Since then, Edwards has overseen and been a key part of the affiliate network’s expansion into the global leader we know today.
Edwards recently wrote for Hello Partner about his efforts on the publisher-side of affiliate marketing since leaving Awin, and his surprise at how difficult the whole ordeal is. With a wealth of knowledge and experience under his belt, we look forward to whatever new challenges and ventures Edwards sets his sights on.
The beginning of the month saw some strategic shifts in the network’s leadership team. Following his sixth year at Awin, Ian Charlesworth stepped up to Vice President, Europe and APAC, after delivering consistent growth and innovation in the UK and Benelux.
The network also welcomed Gisele Mast to its C-suite. As Chief Product and Technology Officer, Mast will be leading and looking after Awin's technical ecosystem, as well as delivering effective products for both advertisers and publishers.
Rosalyn Berrisford has been appointed as Regional Managing Director, UK & BNL, bringing 12 years of experience within the company to the role.

I’m thrilled to be stepping into Ian’s shoes and championing our partners across our growing industry.”
