Ninestar Promotes Experienced Women into Senior RolesAt a time when women are still being overlooked for key management positions in most Western workplaces, Chinese-based Ninestar has just promoted two women into vice-general manager positions.

Linda Fan (pictured right) has been promoted to Senior Vice General Manager of Ninestar Image and Celia Wu (pictured left) to Vice General Manager of Ninestar Image.

According to an ongoing McKinsey study of women in the workplace, progress toward gender parity remains slow in the USA with women continuing to lose ground at the first step up to manager for the sixth year in a row. For every 100 men promoted to manager, only 85 women were promoted. Women held just 38 per cent of manager-level positions, while men held 62 per cent.

Linda Fan joined Ninestar in 2006 and most recently served as Regional Sales Director handling sales in Europe, Asia Pacific and Australia. In her new role as Senior Vice General Manager, she will assist Eric Zhang, the General Manager of Ninestar Image, to carry out the company’s daily management.

Celia Wu brings more than 19 years of experience in international sales and management, with much of her career spent at Ninestar. In her new role, she will be responsible for brand development and new business development.

“We’re so happy to announce Linda and Celia’s well-deserved promotions,” said Eric Zhang. “I am extremely honored to have these two brilliant ladies continue to grow with Ninestar. According to Zhang both women are highly experienced, passionate and are committed to providing valuable support and service to Ninestar’s customers while contributing to the company’s overall success. “I know they will continue to be a great asset to our company and our customers,” he added.
