CJ selects PartnerCentric as Agency of Year finalist

Commission Junction today announced that PartnerCentric is a finalist of its CJYou Awards in the Agency of the Year category. The awards will be presented Sept. 16 in Santa Barbara, California at the annualCommission Junction University (CJU), a networking and educational event for the affiliate marketing industry.

“We’re honored to be a finalist for Agency of the Year particularly in a year when our industry has faced so many challenges,” said PartnerCentric Linda Woods. “Our commitment to helping merchants and affiliates succeed meant that we spent a lot of time this year helping our partners navigate the down economy and affiliate tax legislation being considered by several states. Despite all that, 2009 is a year of growth for our partners. We’re proud of that, and we’re proud of this nomination.”

The award finalists are advertisers, publishers and agencies representing national and international brands who qualified as a result of their outstanding network performance metrics or because they were nominated by their partners and peers.

“We are very excited to congratulate these top notch companies. Our clients are what make Commission Junction the affiliate marketing provider of choice for America’s largest online marketers and we consider each of these finalists winners,” said Kerri Pollard, General Manager of Commission Junction. “CJU is the perfect place to recognize these accomplishments and provide a well-deserved round of applause for each of the finalists.”
