ChannelAdvisor bolsters executive team

ChannelAdvisor, a leading provider of cloud-based e-commerce solutions that enable retailers and manufacturers to increase global sales, has promoted Jordan Weinstein to the role of managing director, EMEA.

Weinstein will be responsible for developing the company’s local strategy and direction for growth. Along with this appointment, ChannelAdvisor has expanded its European management team with four new directors in the EMEA region.

Since joining ChannelAdvisor in 2007, Weinstein has been responsible for managing the company’s business development and channel sales through working with agencies and other strategic partners to help online retailers drive more sales.

“I’m thrilled to be leading ChannelAdvisor in Europe. This is an exciting time for the company as we see opportunities for continued growth in the industry through omnichannel expansion, cross-border trade and social e-commerce, as well as through technological innovation,” Weinstein said. “ChannelAdvisor is dedicated to delivering world-class services and solutions to our customers. We really want to see them excel during this transformational time in the retail industry.”

In addition to Weinstein’s promotion, the European management team has a new EU commercial director; a new head of services, EMEA; a director of account management, EMEA and a director of strategic partnerships — placing ChannelAdvisor in a solid position for targeted growth and expansion in Europe.

Barney Willis joins ChannelAdvisor as EU commercial director. Willis has 20 years of frontline sales experience.

Michal Kaluzynski has been named the head of services, EMEA. Kaluzynski joins ChannelAdvisor from Amazon. He held a number of positions with the retail giant, most recently as a senior vendor manager for the U.K. musical instruments store.

Lucie Allen takes the reins as director of account management, EMEA. Allen has more than 11 years of experience as head of account management at Net Names, an online brand protection company.

Håkan Thyr is now director of strategic partnerships, EMEA. With a dual focus on building ChannelAdvisor’s core relationships, such as those with eBay, Amazon and Google, and building the partner programme, Thyr’s key brief is to further develop ChannelAdvisor’s vast ecosystem of strategic partners across the EMEA region.
