What’s old is new again
Well that happened quickly. It feels like a few days ago I was planning our summer 2018 vacation and looking forward to the warm rays of the sun and now it is deep into Q4. Time sure does fly by each year.
Not only are we hustling to take advantage of this season for all of you, our amazing clients, but we are already looking ahead at 2019 and planning for another successful year. We’re not only planning for you but also planning for us! And we have some changes that will positively effect you, your JEBCommerce team, and your affiliate program that we want to share with you.
The Big News
You may recall that recently one of our long term employees, Jon Goodwin, found his next big adventure outside of the JEB walls. I’m happy to report he is doing an amazing job in his next big thing but misses all of you he did work with. Since his departure we’ve been looking for the perfect replacement as the Director of the affiliate management team here at JEBCommerce.
We’re happy to announce that we have found that person, and it’s an old friend of the company. This week we promoted Stephen Robinson to lead our entire affiliate management team. You may have heard his name in the industry before.
A Little About Stephen
Stephen has worked in affiliate marketing for 12 years and got his start with JEBCommerce way back in the day. He was one of our first employees. Since then Stephen has helped manage some of the biggest affiliate programs out there. He brings his extensive experience to the team and to each of your programs. I couldn’t be more excited for us, for him, and for all of you.
Over the coming weeks, Stephen will be joining calls with you and setting up individual calls to learn more about you, your companies, your programs, your needs, obstacles, and goals. I’ve included Stephen’s contact info below and a short note from him. Feel free to reach out to him if you need anything at all.
And as always, thank you for your partnership and trusting JEBCommerce to manage your affiliate channel.

The path back to JEBCommerce included a 4-year stint in internet sales in the automotive industry where Stephen sold a 1997 Porsche RUF Turbo to a customer over an AutoTrader chat.
He returned to his roots in affiliate marketing, spending two years at House of Kaizen managing large subscription brands such as Audible, PRWeb and iContact. After that he spent a year and a half at AIM, where he managed several multi-channel retailers including: Motorcycle Superstore and J&P Cycles and Vega to name a few other brands.
In the spring of 2018 Stephen joined JEBCommerce as a Senior Affiliate Manager, before being promoted to Director in December 2018 where he thoroughly enjoys working with the rest of the team, driving strategy and delivering outstanding service to JEBCommerce's roster of clients.
When not working, Stephen enjoys spending as much time as possible on his boat with his wife, Jamara, and their three girls. He also enjoys volunteering at his church serving as the youth director. In his spare time, he is continuing training for triathlons with a goal of completing a 140.6 Ironman while he is still young.
