Rakuten LinkShare appoints Australian MD

RetailBiz.Com.Au –  Rakuten LinkShare has appointed Anthony Capano as managing director of its Australian operations.

Since the Australian launch of Rakuten LinkShare six months ago, the company has already established a strong portfolio of local retailers as part of the network, including Appliances Online, Dyson Australia, Styletread and oo.com.au.

“Anthony has a deep understanding of the local retail market and drawing on his knowledge and experience will undoubtedly enable us to grow Rakuten LinkShare’s presence in Australia,” said Yaz Iida, chief executive officer, Rakuten LinkShare.

“As e-commerce continues to grow down under, this hire is a strategic part of our business plan to meet the needs of local online retailers in Australia and global advertisers looking to expand their businesses to Australian consumers.”
