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.
