In his new remit, he will take immediate responsibility for building and implementing strategies to drive acquisition, revenue growth and brand development for the UK market as well as taking control of match.com's multi-million pound marketing budget. Karl will also head up business development and continue to build strategic partnerships working alongside match.com's new Business Development Manager, Carlie Sillett.

"match.com is an innovative company with a strong, instantly recognisable brand that has successfully made online dating synonymous with finding love. Taking the brand forward at such an exciting time for the category is a very attractive opportunity for me."

Prior to joining match.com, Karl was the Marketing Director at iProfile where he developed and executed the go-to-market strategy to launch iProfile as the online CV of choice. He was also Head of Marketing at Yahoo UK Search and successfully grew its Search division in his four years with the business as well as leading the re-brand and re-launch of AltaVista across Europe as Marketing Director.

Jason Stockwood, International MD match.com said:

"Karl brings with him a wealth of online brand experience which makes him well placed to further develop match.com's customer base through new and engaging marketing. As the leading global dating brand, we are committed to growing our business by delivering customer-focused innovation, and Karl's strong leadership will be absolutely key."
