Schaaf-PartnerCentric Promotes Stephanie Harris to Chief Operating Officer

Affiliate Program Management Agency Schaaf-PartnerCentric has just announced the promotion of Stephanie Harris to the position of Chief Operating Officer.

Harris was previously the Director of Affiliate Management, a position that called upon her affiliate marketing experience to manage a team of affiliate program managers who oversee more than 50 affiliate programs.

Stephanie joined Schaaf-PartnerCentric in September 2006 and quickly earned a reputation among her peers as an innovative affiliate program manager. In 2007 she was a top three affiliate manager on ABestWeb, and in 2008, 2009, and 2010 she was a finalist for the Affiliate Summit Pinnacle Award for affiliate manager.

“Stephanie will make a great COO,” said Brook Schaaf, Schaaf-PartnerCentric CEO and General Commentator.  “She shines in everything she does. I’d say her only weakness is failing to properly appreciate my jokes, many of which are hilarious.  It’s something we’re actively working to correct.”

Throughout her role of growing importance in the company, Stephanie has continued to manage programs for Moosejaw, InTheSwim, and Payless ShoeSource.

“This is thrilling news,” said Kate Chelovich, Internet Marketing Manager for Moosejaw.com, a client whose affiliate program Harris has managed for several years. “Stephanie Harris has effectively managed our program to produce epic results over the past years. I haven’t been this proud of someone since my friend Liam won a blue ribbon for his Gouda back in ‘98.”

She has anextensive background in affiliate marketing strategy, online media buying and selling, paid search campaigns, natural search optimization and display advertising campaigns.

“Stephanie is passionate and extremely knowledgeable when it comes to the affiliate space,” said Christine Matson, Vice President of Marketing for InTheSwim.com, another Schaaf-PartnerCentric client. “Her business instincts, focus, high energy and relationship skills have been key to our growth. Working with her and the Schaaf-PartnerCentric team has been a pleasure.”

Before joining Schaaf-PartnerCentric, then known as Schaaf Consulting, she spent two years as an online advertising manager for Scholastic, Inc, where she helped launch the Scholastic Store Online and Scholastic Teacher Store Online affiliate programs. In 2005, she was the recipient of the Scholastic Exceptional Marketers Award.

“Stephanie is an invaluable player, and we are excited to expand her role because her efforts are always superlative,” said Forrest Schaaf. “This move helps position us for even bigger and better things.”
