Press release from Stack’s Bowers and Ponterio:
Stack’s Bowers and Ponterio has hired Zhou Shou Yuan as its
Executive Consignment Director of China.
Shou Yuan will focus on gathering consignments and representing
Stack’s Bowers and Ponterio in mainland China. Shou Yuan, who has
collected stamps and coins since the 1990s, most recently founded
Shouxi.com in 2013 to provide timely, comprehensive, authoritative and
independent third party information and services to collectors of
Chinese coins. Shouxi.com is the most influential brand among online
and offline interactive platforms in Chinese numismatics.
“It is with great pleasure and excitement that I welcome Zhou Shou
Yuan to our already industry leading team in Asia. Zhou’s addition
reiterates our focus on the rapidly growing collecting market in
China. Zhou is an incredibly talented expert with strong collector
relationships, and perhaps more importantly, shares the same ideals,
morals and vision as Stack’s Bowers and Ponterio for the Asian
marketplace,” stated Brian Kendrella, president of Stack’s Bowers and Ponterio.
Shou Yuan is a graduate of the Wuhan University Electrical
Engineering College and has 15 years of cross-industrial and
management experience and a very strong relationship with Internet,
print and television media. His background and expertise will increase
Stack’s Bowers and Ponterio’s presence in the Chinese market and
enhance the firm’s current record of success.
“I am very excited about Zhou Shou Yuan joining our team,” said
Nirat Lertchitvikul, director of Asian Operations. “His record of
success in previous endeavors makes us confident that he will be a
dynamic, positive addition to the staff and provide excellent service
to current and future clients.”
“I am very excited to be joining Stack’s Bowers and Ponterio,” said
Shou Yuan, who will continue to operate Shouxi.com. “Since entering
the Asian market in 2010, SBP has solidified themselves as the leading
auction house for Asian coins and paper money. I look forward to
sharing my love of numismatics with our clients and providing guidance
and assistance with all their collecting needs.”
Richard Ponterio, executive vice president, added, “Since we began
hosting auctions in Hong Kong in December 2010, we have sold nearly
$100 million USD worth of Chinese and Asian coins and paper money to
clients throughout mainland China. The addition of Shou Yuan will make
it easier for clients in mainland China to work with us. I
warm-heartedly welcome Shou Yuan to our team.”
Stack’s Bowers and Ponterio is currently accepting consignments of
Chinese and Asian coins and currency for its Showcase Auctions held in
Hong Kong in December, April and August each year.
