  • Affiliate of the Year – Mike Allen
  • Affiliate Manager of the Year – Angel Djambazov
  • Exceptional Merchant – CelebrateExpress.com
  • Affiliate Marketing Advocate – Melanie Seery
  • Best Blogger – Scott Jangro
  • Affiliate Marketing Legend – Kellie Stevens

Congratulations to all the winners and finalists.

I am very proud and honored to receive the award. Due to medical reasons, I was unable to attend Affiliate Summit, but want to express my appreciation to Shawn Collins and Missy Ward, founders of Affiliate Summit, and everyone involved in the decision. I also want to thank everyone who supported NY Affiliates over the past nine months. There are far too many to thank without sounding like a speech at the Oscar Awards but a special thank you to Kevin Webster my partner and friend in unraveling the mystery; the amazing people who gathered in Albany to find a solution; Haiko De Poel Jr for providing friendship, a forum and was a meeting sponsor; and the other two major sponsors of our Albany meeting – Brian Littleton of ShareASale and Andy Rodriguez of Andy Rodriguez Consulting Inc. There are dozens of other supporters – merchants, networks and affiliates – a big thank you to all.

And thank you always to my children, who always sense when mom needs a hug; they are my hope and inspiration.

    Thanks, and thank you Andy for all you have done to support all of us, and for being at our meeting in Albany and well, just for everything!

    Thanks Herb, I missed being there. See you in August for Affiliate Summit East? Maybe we should have an Albany group reunion party. Thanks for all your work and dedication on the NY tax issue. Been a long few months hasn’t it?
