MARKETING WEEK -- May 22 -- Upheaval is continuing at the marketing department of online dating site Match.com with the departure of its European CMO Mathew Welch after 15 months, shortly after the resignation of UK senior manager Sarah Drew, who is leaving the company to join online recruitment firm TheLadders.com as managing director. Welch was appointed in the new marketing role in March last year following a nine month search by Match.com. He is believed to have a job in the telecoms sector. Earlier this year former Travelocity managing director Jason Stockwood joined UK managing director Match.com, succeeding former Travelocity marketing director Charlotte Harper who also only held the role for about a year.

Mark Brooks: I've also noticed some turnover in the Match.com PR department of late. But nothing untoward. They are a big company with tough growth goals that push people to their limit. It's a rosy job market right now, so people are bound to be getting headhunted for higher level positions elsewhere.
