Corporate Development focuses on establishing, then maintaining, a robust feedback loop with our key clients’ marketing client contacts and key executives where we both listen to their needs and demonstrate that CJ is the market leader in affiliate. This relationship helps us as we work to minimize contract cancellations while limiting rate reductions and improving other contractual, data, and technical integrations. 

Key account renewals are vital to CJ’s long-term success and need to be proactively managed and orchestrated by this team. Our Corporate Development team, which sits within the Business Development organization, engages our largest strategic accounts.

The team aligns to our US Corporate Development team but is a standalone role in the UK with huge scope for development. Our ideal candidate will bring a blend of business development, senior-level (VP+) client account management, deep domain expertise in the affiliate space, and solid understanding of the other areas in which Epsilon and Publicis are engaged such as, private label credit cards, email, CRM, video, display, mobile, loyalty programs, and others.

For assigned accounts, improve the rate of renewal and quality of our agreement by minimizing contract cancellations while limiting rate reductions and improving other contractual, data, and technical integrations.
