Annie Kane

Kane has fostered a relationship with online retailer Wayfair, helping its ROI with strategically placed commercials. In turn, Wayfair has become Cooking Channel’s top retail client.

The industry itself has changed and grown so much over the past few years. I’m excited to be a part of this next phase and have a direct impact on clients marketing goals as we head into the future.
