I was actually attempting to have you clarify your statement, lest anyone reading it, think it had racial undertones. It didn't work.

His name has no bearing. BTW, there are over 65,000 Americans named "Sandeep"*.

1. Yea right. You wanted to "help" me.

2. It does have bearing on my believing it may have been some kind of sick joke. And who cares about "Americans". We are talking about foreign ownership of an Indian person.

3. Yep. On my "Buy American" beliefs and ethics.

4. Don't try to "help" me again. Your help is not needed or wanted. And just to be perfectly clear, so that we don't have to discuss any further. Don't address me personally. Address the subjects of threads.

I wish the "new" CBCS ownership all the best in their endeavours.

Also, for all we know Mr. Sandeep Dua may have saved CBCS. Without him, we may have been stuck with CGC.

Who says Sandeep Dua owned the company?

Correct me if I'm wrong...

CBCS is owned by Beckett Media
Beckett Media is owned by Eli Global
Eli Global is an American rooted International Company with many offices worldwide including USA and India
Eli Global is majority owned by Greg Lindberg
Greg Lindberg was born and raised in America

Beckett stated they bought CBCS to grow the service and expand internationally...you can't grow a company internationally without having leadership in other countries...

Sometimes to secure leadership in other countries you need fancy titles like CEO to attract them.

EDIT - Has anyone googled the Indian comic industry? It appears to be a huge market.

None of this would matter if CBCS customers were happy.

From what I read on these forums, they're not.

I read frustration and disappointment. Too much, at this point, to want to send my books to CBCS.

I'm still watching. And waiting.

It would be nice to have clarity on this.

Sandeep owns Entrust Global, which claims CBCS. However, he is a portfolio manager at Eli Global, which currently does not claim cbcs on their site (but does claim Beckett).

Wut.

Either you like the product or not. The way the owners and operators look and spell their name should not matter.

Absolutely. Ethnicity should not matter one bit, nor looks nor spelling.

Buying domestic product, however, does matter to a lot of folks. Although most of them dont realize the domestic product they are purchasing is not completely that.

I sit proudly atop my John Deere (that has a japanese diesel engine, chinese electronics, and India steel) 🤪

Ironically, if you switch the term “Norwegians” with Indian, Mexican, Somalian etc. - this thread gets auto-locked.

Ask him why he was banned from across the street, I don't think it'll be too hard to figure out.

The mods should not only close this thread, they should wipe it off the boards IMHO.

Anyone know anything solid either way on this?


For the record, CBCS is not moving customer service to India. The information from the OP is incorrect.
