Sean Christian
Revolution Force

I was recruited by the founder of Cams.com in 2000, to bring a new company to profitability. In less than one year, I built an affiliate program that furnished the majority of the company’s income and provided a foundation for its continued growth. That affiliate program became an industry model and led to the merger between Cams.com and AdultFriendFinder in 2006.

Following the merger, I constructed a Business Development team at FriendFinder Networks, which continued to flourished for the next six years. By building mutually beneficial relationships with our affiliates, my team and I fostered true business relationships and generated hundreds of millions of dollars. After deciding to assume a Vice President position, I continued to build on and refine this model, and our success continued. Committed to continuing to expand the reach of our network and build on this model, my team and I left FriendFinder Networks to join a new corporation. As an executive at Noosphere, I oversaw the business development of Together Networks, UpForIt Networks, and ClickDealer for the American market.  

Anxious to put my own mark on the space, and return a more personalized model, I decided to move onto a new project in 2015. Returning to my family and hometown, I, along with my team of marketing veterans, launched Revolution Force, a boutique marketing firm committed to continuing to build and foster mutually beneficial relationships.
