PARSIPPANY, N.J. — Midea America Corp. (MAC) is making a change in its corporate direction, which asserts a refined focus toward the global objectives of promoting the Midea brands, including Midea, Arctic King, Kool King, and Comfee.
This has led to the decision to name Eli Glanzberg as the new president of MAC.
The change includes a consolidation of the Canadian subsidiary as well, forming a newly named company, Midea America and Canada Corp. (MACC).
Glanzberg has served as vice president of MAC and general manager of the refrigeration and laundry division since 2010. Prior to his career with MAC, Glanzberg served as the senior vice president of sales and marketing at Emerson Radio Corp. for seven years. He brings more than 30 years of experience in the retail and wholesale North American markets.
Isaac Xiao, former MAC president, will be promoted to associate vice president of Midea Intl. Division (MID), heading up the OEM businesses Midea runs internationally, and to coordinate the OEM business Midea continues to maintain in North America. Xiao had been in the U.S. for seven years and was instrumental in guiding more of MAC’s growth into U.S. distribution while turning the company around to profitability.
