After spending over a dozen years in the Marketing Departments of various companies and managing her own affiliate sites, Missy Ward founded Affiliate Summit Corporation in 2003 with her business partner, Shawn Collins on a $400 investment.
In 2017, Clarion Events acquired Affiliate Summit Corporation, which includes the Affiliate Summit tradeshow and conference, FeedFront Magazine, GeekCast.fm, ReveNews.com, and the annual AffStat industry benchmark reports. Missy remained the Co-CEO of Affiliate Summit until July, 2020, when she “retired” for a few minutes before taking on a new role as Founder and CEO of Skrillgrrrl Corp.
For the last 22+ years, Missy Ward has helped companies grow their businesses successfully using the performance marketing model. Before she quit her day job, she was the Director of Public Relations for Media Breakaway LLC; Vice President of Partnership Marketing for eBound Strategies; President of Aluria Software; and Vice-President of Marketing for Global Travel International.
