Avid dating life europe
The site, owned by Avid Life Media, is designed for “discreet encounters” for people seeking an affair. That’s the slogan of highly successful — and highly controversial — online dating site Ashley Madison.Last year Ashley Madison launched in 20 new countries and now has 32 million members.“While we all understand that the service this company offers is somewhat controversial, the reality is — whether fortunately or unfortunately — infidelity is universal and it was prevalent long before Ashley Madison was around,” says Weisman.“And that’s what allows us to expand internationally relatively seamlessly.The plaintiff in the lawsuit is Eliot Shore, an Ottawa widower who joined the dating service “for a short time in search of companionship” but, according to the lawsuit press release, never went on a date.“Presently, we have well over a dozen additional people we are in communication with about being involved,” said David Robins, a partner with Sutts, Strober LLP.
I moved in-house fairly quickly.”Weisman, who has an MBA from York University’s Schulich School of Business, is a one-man legal department at the company’s headquarters in Toronto.
And in 2001, CTV turned down the company’s Super Bowl ad (where a woman announces to a boardroom that her husband is having an affair to a round of approval). “I can honestly say the day-to-day here is exciting, much more so than in past roles, much more unpredictable,” he says.
“We get to see and appreciate our successes here.”Weisman spent almost seven years as senior legal counsel at Allstream, followed by a few years at Avaya — both multibillion-dollar communications and networking technology companies many Canadians have never heard of.
“We always are open to working co-operatively and even collaboratively with the different regulators and advertising approval boards to make sure our ads get green lit,” he says.
It doesn’t always work out though: In 2009, the Toronto Transit Commission turned down a deal to wrap a streetcar in the company’s motto.
There’s a universal demand for our services.”Because of this rapid expansion, his role includes a large international component.
