Since joining Goodbaby International, he is primarily responsible for the management of the Group's portfolio of global brands, and has provided great value to the Group.
In his new role as Deputy Chief Executive Officer of Goodbaby International, he will continue to ride on his expertise in branding and marketing, and be directly responsible for the Group's functions in group technical services, supply chain, brand portfolio management, global sales, as well as the human resources and information technology. He will also spearhead the consolidation of the three companies, Goodbaby, CYBEX and Evenflo to draw upon their advantageous resources and generate synergies. Mr. Song Zhenghuan, Chairman and CEO of the Group, will retain his capacity and be directly responsible for the Group's overall strategic direction and direct management of all blue-chip customers.
Mr. Martin Pos commented, "I feel honored to receive this great level of trust and excited to take on this new role. I am confident to lead this important transition and our new global strategy. Through our excellent technical and manufacturing capabilities, combined with our strong portfolio of strategic brands gb, CYBEX, Evenflo and Urbini, and our national distribution in all key global markets, we will activate strong synergies across the board. This will consequently lead to growth in revenue and profitability in our global markets. Mr. Song's well wishes will be particularly motivating as he has always been a great mentor and friend to me."
Mr. Song commented, "I first met Martin in Germany when he had just founded CYBEX, and I was immediately drawn to his charisma and the huge potential of the brand CYBEX. Martin and I have established a strong bond of trust and friendship since then and I see aspects of myself in Martin as a young entrepreneur with professionalism and drive. We share the same enthusiasm for the industry, and I am confident Martin will implement our shared vision to build a brand-new, one-stop vertically integrated enterprise with global presence and localized operations."
