Gottlieb’s prior role as Chaturabate’s affiliate manager and product manager provides AFF with more in-depth support for continued growth. 

Adult Friend Finder (AFF) is proud to announce and welcome industry veteran Steve Gottlieb as the company’s new Business Development Manager. Gottlieb will lead business development initiatives on both domestic and international scales.

He joins AFF’s California based team effective immediately. The company anticipates that Gottlieb will have immediate positive effects on AFF’s business growth. With over 15 years of industry experience, Gottlieb understands the pursuit of impactful business relationships. During his successful tenure as product manager of the affiliate program for Chaturbate, Gottlieb helped scale the company’s current affiliate base.

Gottlieb’s rich history in product management and sales infuses AFF with a more bottomless arsenal of competitive talent. FriendFinder Network continues to serve as a leader in the live cams and dating verticals. The addition of Gottlieb reflects the company’s continued adherence to producing a high-quality product.

FriendFinder Networks (FFN) announced today that a team of the company’s top executives will be hitting The 2017 Phoenix Forum (TPF) to provide current and potential affiliates with new opportunities to promote its vast network of adult dating, social networking, and camming sites.

Attending the event will be FFN CEO Jon Buckheit, along with Marketing Vice President Charlyn McNamara, Digital Marketing Manager Katie Dillon, Business Development Executive Kalyn Sanders, and Business Development Managers Courtney Rudolph and Paul Hoang.

Rudolph, who has attended the event for the last 7 years, says “The Phoenix Forum is one of my favorite trade shows because the entire hotel is shut down just for the event, so you know everyone you see is ready to talk business and make a deal.” She adds, “The beautiful location, friendly faces, and great weather always make for a good time as well.”

The FFN team will be available from March 22 through March 26 at the Tempe Mission Palms Hotel for meetings and networking.
“We are very selective in deciding which conferences to invest our time and money into, and The Phoenix Forum has been consistently strong for us,” says McNamara, who will be attending the event for the first time. “I look forward to developing new partner relationships and fortifying existing ones.”

Cams.com is excited to participate in the Latin American Adult Expo this year in beautiful Cartagena, Colombia.

This year we will have a full team of Cams.com experts to answer any questions you may have. Ruben Rodriguez is nominated for LAL Expo “Best Industry Representative!” If you have any affiliate or business development questions, he will show you why he was nominated for this prestigious award. Make sure to ask him all about his dogs. Steve Hamilton is our Model Manager. He can answer any and all questions related to the model and studio experience on Cams.com. He was also nominated for “Best Content Producer or Provider” for his video work with studios in Colombia, so he loves to talk video. Scott Thompson, our Director of Product Marketing, will also be on hand to talk about the direction of the Cams.com product. He is an avid surfer, so if he’s not at the booth, he’s likely trying to catch a wave on the beach. We will have models at the booth as well, because it’s LAL and we’re Cams.com!

Since you saw us last year we have rolled out many new advances including: Tipping Mode, Buzzmode, Connexions, Tokens, and Cams.com Model of the Year. Ask us about the MANY more new advances that we are working on to improve how models can monetize their time both online and when they are away from the computer!

Soon after he got out of the non-compete, he started another dating website, FriendFinder.com, in 1996. The rest is History as they say!
