RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. (Business Wire) -- ChannelAdvisor (NYSE:ECOM), a leading provider of cloud-based e-commerce solutions that enable retailers and manufacturers to increase global sales, today announced that industry veteran James Huang has been appointed managing director for Greater China. He will be leading the effort to forge industry partnerships and further establish ChannelAdvisor as the e-commerce standard in the region.

“We have enormous respect for James' experience in the e-commerce sector. His extensive knowledge will be of tremendous value to us internally as well as to our customers, and we believe he is uniquely qualified to spearhead ChannelAdvisor's growth strategy for Greater China,” said ChannelAdvisor President and COO David Spitz. “His skills and expertise within the region will help us better cultivate opportunities for the retail industry in China.”

In his role, Huang will be responsible for helping retailers and manufacturers understand the value of the ChannelAdvisor platform in their efforts to successfully sell their products across multiple online channels and geographies, as well as continuing to expand sales in the Greater China region.

Prior to this role, Huang was the chairman and CEO of MerchantRun Holdings Limited, where he pioneered channel-management software services and subsequently led the company to acquisition. He then became the managing director of overseas business development for 4PX, where he managed major initiatives for the group's five subsidiaries and engineered strategic partnerships with online marketplaces.

“I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to lead ChannelAdvisor in this region as it continues to accelerate its pace of innovation in e-commerce,” said Huang. “It's an exciting time to be in this industry and I look forward to working with our customers and partners to build on the excellent work the team has already achieved.”

Earlier this year, ChannelAdvisor announced its new Hong Kong office in the famous Victoria Harbour. Hong Kong serves as a hub for ChannelAdvisor to connect with retailers and manufacturers within the greater China region.
