Todd Crawford, Vice-President of Sales, Leaving Commission Junction

Wow! I must say, I'm shocked. Just a few weeks earlier, the affiliate marketing community learned that Steve and Heidi Messer were stepping down at Linkshare and Steve Denton was moving on up. Now, Todd Crawford has announced that he will be leaving CJ on March 10 to "try something different."

I'm going to miss Todd, and I'm certain the affiliate marketing industry as a whole will miss him as well. I met Todd early on in my career in affiliate marketing, and considered him a friend. If I ever had a CJ-related problem and didn't know where else to turn, I could usually dial or email Todd and he quickly found a solution. Bumping into Todd at affiliate marketing events was always a treat because regardless of the topic of discussion, Todd had an opinion that he felt strongly about, and was able to articulate that opinion quite convincingly.

Best of luck, Todd, and I hope we bump into each other again sometime in the future.
