“I am pleased to welcome Jon to the ANDMORE team and am confident we have found the right leader for the future of our great company,” Maricich said. “Jon is a seasoned executive closely aligned with our company’s core values and our unwavering focus on putting the customer first. It has been a tremendous privilege to build and lead this business over the last 13 years, and I look forward to working alongside Jon, Dorothy and the rest of the team in my new role as executive chairman. The future is bright as we continue to build on our culture, our successes, and our customer partnerships to grow our unique industry position as the only omnichannel B2B marketplace.”

“It is a great honor to succeed Bob and to partner with the talented ANDMORE team to continue building on the important mission to offer MORE for customers every day,” Pertchik said. “Bob and the team have done an incredible job growing a differentiated business, dedicated to partnering with wholesale buyers and sellers to help them grow and prosper, and I look forward to leading ANDMORE into its next chapter.”

Pertchik joins ANDMORE with over 20 years of leadership experience across real estate, hospitality and finance industries. Most recently, he was CEO of TravelCenters of America (TCA), a Fortune 500 company, where he led the organization, ultimately earning recognition as one of Newsweek’s “Most Trustworthy” large travel and leisure companies. Prior to his role at TCA, Pertchik served as CEO of InTown Suites / Uptown Suites as well as ST Residential, and held leadership roles at WCI Communities and The Staubach Company.

Pertchik will make his permanent office in Atlanta while also setting up offices in Las Vegas and High Point, North Carolina.

Added Rob Harper, Blackstone’s head of Real Estate Asset Management Americas: “We are grateful to Bob for his visionary leadership throughout his tenure at ANDMORE and appreciate his continued dedication to the business. Jon’s multi-faceted leadership experience, passion for the customer, and commitment to teamwork make him the perfect fit for this role, and we are thrilled to welcome him to the team.”

ANDMORE also promoted Dorothy Belshaw to president. Belshaw brings 32 years of experience in the wholesale marketplace industry, including 12 years with ANDMORE holding positions as chief revenue officer, chief marketing officer, and most recently, chief growth officer.

“I am eager to work with and learn from an industry leader like Dorothy who is widely recognized for her many years of leadership, customer centricity and industry support,” Pertchik said.

Belshaw joined ANDMORE, then IMC, in 2012, bringing 20-plus years of home and gift trade show industry experience. Initially hired to bring the category to the Las Vegas Market, her role soon broadened to include responsibility for all aspects of the end-to-end customer experience, driving increased buyer acquisition across all IMC markets, and developing tools and services to improve the at-market experience for buyers and exhibitors.

Belshaw will be honored with the 2024 Gift for Life Industry Achievement Award in June, which recognizes overall excellence and contribution to the gift and home industry.
