ChannelAdvisor Corporation, a provider of enterprise marketplace management solutions, says it has created an advisory board to further strengthen the company’s ties with the consumer electronics, computer and travel industry.

ChannelAdvisor, which is headquartered in RTP, has appointed Barry Friedman, vice president and co-founder of Fog Studios to the advisory board. Alan Fuerstman, chief executive officer and president of Platinum Hotel Group, has also joined the new group.

ChannelAdvisor says the board will ultimately be composed of six to eight people, including members that will represent expertise in five key industry areas: travel, retail, consumer electronics, computer and automobiles. The objective of the board, ChannelAdvisor says, is to formalize and intensify the company’s links and assist them in planning its strategic business initiatives going forward.
