Well-known entrepreneur and former owner of the now defunct Eagle Web Assetts (EWA), Ryan Eagle has announced that he has agreed to purchase Affiliate.com and Media BreakAway from former Spam-King and strip club connoisseur Scott Richter. Insiders say that the buyout was funded by Sergie Ivankov, a Russian financier who has close connections to the rebill credit card industry. This is an interesting twist in the story of Ryan Eagle, a former child star, whose company EWA closed after many months of denials by their founder. The purchase of Media Breakaway seems strange, as many people felt that Eagle would be unable to enter the industry again after owing so many people so much money. However, Eagle was able to put a positive spin on this new venture. ?I am confident that my history in the industry, and the enormous trust that I?ve built with affiliates will help grow Affiliate.com and Media Breakaway to new levels,? said Ryan Eagle over Skype. ?Media Breakaway is a great company, with a long history of enterprise and innovation and fits perfectly with the work that I do.? He pointed out also that his enormous fame amongst India-based affiliates would help him grow the business. As part of the transition, Jazette Pester, a long time employee of the company, will be placed at the head of the company and named Chief Affiliate Officer. She had been with the company since 2004 after graduating from University of Denver and had climbed up the corporate ladder from Affiliate Manager to Senior Affiliate Manager in only nine short years.
