"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.
