Kristiné Kirschke began her career in affiliate marketing at CJ (now CJ Affiliate by Conversant) in 2000 as the industry was just getting started. She held a number of roles at CJ prior to coming on board with Schaaf-PartnerCentric in 2010.
During her 10 years at CJ, she worked in many roles from Sales to Account Management, as well as outsourced Affiliate Program Management for the Yahoo! affiliate programs within CJ. Additional roles included Business Development to maximize the growth of existing advertiser programs. She eventually joined the Agency Services team within CJ as Agency Account Executive supporting a portfolio of outsourced program management agencies. It was within this role that she became familiar with Schaaf-PartnerCentric.
Kristiné initially joined the Schaaf-PartnerCentric team as an Affiliate Account Manager providing affiliate management support for the eBay Partner Network and now manages a unique portfolio of advertiser programs. Additionally, she is heading up one of Schaaf-PartnerCentric’s newest services called REACH, where clients have an opportunity to expand their brand exposure beyond affiliate marketing relationships by securing placements on highly trafficked and targeted sites through customized outreach based on a client’s needs.
Kristiné lives in Santa Barbara, CA with her husband and two children, and takes advantage of the natural beauty of the area by hiking and making as many visits to the beach as possible.
