Tracie Gross - 

Sr. Affiliate Program Manager

How long have you worked for PartnerCentric?10 Years!  

What does your typical day look like?

I'm very routine. After taking the kids to school, I start my morning answering emails and checking performance for my clients from the prior day.  After that, I'll start my tasks I've prioritizes for the day.  Part preparing for a client weekly status call, part working with my team executing the strategies put in place for my clients.  Before you know it, it's time to pick the kids up from school.

What do you enjoy most about the industry?

Every single day is different. There are so many new and innovative ways to recruit, grow revenue, partner with new affiliates, create compelling offers, etc.. You never know what to expect.

Is there anything else you want readers to know about you?

I'm happy to work at a company where my colleagues share the same love for 90's rap as I do.

If you could travel anywhere in the world for one week, where would you go and why?

I would go back to Bora Bora - the most beautiful place I've ever seen.  I went for my honeymoon and hope one day I'll make it back there despite the very long trip to get there.  When you think of paradise, it's basically Bora Bora.

Alex Reno (soon to be Alex Aquilon!) -

Project Manager, Technology

How long have you worked for PartnerCentric?

1 year and 2 months

What does your typical day look like?

Being in technology, the best part about my work day is that there is always a new obstacle to tackle! My morning always starts with my BIG cup of Peet's coffee (have a small addiction). I always make sure to tackle any urgent tracking issues or integrations first, and then I  dive into current technical items and product catalogs.

What do you enjoy most about the industry?

The tight-knit affiliate group of intelligent individuals of course! Also, the recap of your job description from someone who is not in the industry:  "I think she does something with online advertisers on the computer with those banners that pop up, and some code stuff."

Is there anything else you want readers to know about you?

I just got engaged in Mexico in April, I cannot wait to start the next chapter! 

When you were little, what did you dream of being when you grew up?

A grocery bagger and you better believe I can bag the best bag of groceries till this day!

Dan Fink -

Senior Affiliate Manager

How long have you worked for PartnerCentric? 6 years

What does your typical day look like? A Hero Sandwich - I begin and end my day with some of the daily and more standard tasks and in between there is lots of good stuff going on.

What do you enjoy most about the industry?

I enjoy how affiliate marketing continues to be an extremely dynamic piece of the marketing puzzle for merchants.  After being in the industry for over 13 years many pieces of the industry continue to change so quickly that it never gets boring.  We learn new ways to re-invent our programs and partnerships.  Whether that means utilizing a new technology, new way of collecting data, or working with a new type of publisher.

Is there anything else you want readers to know about you?

I'm a night owl and can't force myself to sleep before 1am.

When you were little, what did you dream of being when you grew up?

I wanted to be a paleontologist (dinosaur hunter) and my parents actually sent me out to the Badlands when I was 14 to try it out for 2 weeks on my own with this science museum program on Long Island.  It was a neat experience, we saw a lot of the West besides mountains of dirt and I did get some dinosaur bones. More importantly, I learned that at least for me the actual actions of a paleontologist are quite boring and not at all like Jurassic Park.

That’s all, folks! Tune in next month to get to know your PartnerCentric family a little better!
