Global Sources Appoints Craig Pepples as New CEO
Chinese sourcing marketplace and trade show organizer Global Sources has appointed Craig Pepples as their new CEO.
Pepples was previously named Deputy CEO with effect from Oct. 1, 2016, following the announcement that former CEO Spenser Au would retire from Global Sources at the end of 2016.
Merle A. Hinrich, Global Sources' executive chairman stated: "We are excited for Craig to take on the role as Global Sources' new CEO. Since joining the Company over 30 years ago, Craig has accumulated in-depth knowledge of many parts of the business, including sales, marketing and operations, as well as having established himself as a B2B media expert. I would also like to thank Spenser for his 39 years of service to the Company, the last five of which were as CEO. Spenser was instrumental in making this leadership transition a smooth one. I congratulate him on his retirement and wish him nothing but the best in the years ahead."
