On Tuesday this week I put in my notice to the new management team here at AE/CW Group. It's been one of the most difficult decisions of my life, as I've spent nine years building up AE and trying to make it the best that it could be in a market space strewn with pitfalls for affiliates, players and affiliate managers alike. I'll still be around but should you have specific concerns, please send them on to my email and I'll forward them to the management team to address. I wish you all the very best going forward. read more
