As you may have already heard, as part of data company, Epsilon, CJ Affiliate was recently acquired by Publicis Groupe and will now operate under the umbrella of their media hub, Publicis Media.
We're especially inspired and excited by Publicis Media's focus: to help clients navigate the modern media landscape. CJ’s standing as the best-in-class affiliate network is a complementary fit, thanks to both organizations’ joint commitment to technology, data and—most importantly—client service and performance.
As an important part of our next chapter, Mayur Kshetramade has taken over as the President of CJ Affiliate. Mayur succeeds Waleed Al-Atraqchi, who decided to leave CJ in order to return to his entrepreneurial roots. Much of CJ's success over the last four years is attributed to Waleed's focus on building a strong customer-centric culture that delivered substantial growth and transformed how we innovate faster and better. As the previous head of CJ’s Client Development and Data Science teams, Mayur looks forward to continuing this momentum as we grow into the future.
In the months ahead, the leadership teams at Publicis Media and CJ Affiliate will focus on enabling CJ’s global expansion and continued standing as the world’s largest and most established affiliate network. There will be many opportunities for us, together, to deliver innovative solutions, strategies and big results for you on a global scale.
We couldn't be more excited to embark on this new journey!
