We are zanox!
The executive board
The zanox executive board comprises of Mark Walters (CEO), Adam Ross (COO) and Peter Loveday (CTO).
Mark Walters, CEO
Mark Walters' extensive commercial and managerial experience, spanning over 25 years, has seen him working in every area of media, particularly taking responsibility for management team building, project development and value creation. For the past 10 years, Mark was Managing Director of performance network, Affiliate Window in the UK and joined the zanox Executive board in April 2014. Mark was appointed as Group CEO in September 2014.
Adam Ross, COO
Adam's career began when he joined Affiliate Window back in 2004. At the time, the company was small with just 15 employees. Two colleagues, Mark Walters and Peter Loveday, joined around the same period.
Over the course of the next five years, they formed the management team and eventual board of the company alongside the founders. They gradually built the company into the UK's leading affiliate network with over 250 staff and a turnover of £200m.
In 2009, they directed the sale of 50.1% of the company to European media giants Axel Springer and PubliGroupe and very soon afterwards acquired buy.at, their biggest competitor, from AOL. As well as being strong in the UK, buy.at had a fledgling US operation which eventually gave rise to Affiliate Window US.
Axel Springer and Swisscom (Switzerland) Ltd also own zanox, continental Europe's leading network, and soon merged the two companies to form the zanox Group which today employs 700 staff and turns over €500m in revenue.
In 2014, Adam, Peter and Mark, having successfully managed the UK and US operations for many years, joined the board of the zanox Group as COO, CTO and CEO respectively and now share their time across Berlin and London, where most of the central operations are based, as well as the eight other territories across the world.
In his capacity as COO, Adam overseas each territory alongside global operations, sales and service departments.
Peter Loveday, CTO
Peter Loveday became Chief Technology Officer at zanox in September 2014 and is responsible for all technological aspects across the Group. Peter has over 20 years of experience developing and managing complex web applications, specialising in online marketing and web analytics. Prior to joining the zanox Executive Board, Peter was CTO at subsidiary network, Affiliate Window based in the UK where he implemented an agile process for product development and was a driving force behind the evolution of their technology solutions.
