New roles to support European growth
Jack Wolfskin has appointed Hartmut Klein, current senior manager for European sales, to take care of markets outside of German-speaking countries and the UK, while Natascha El Mahmoud will take on the new post of senior sales manager for Germany, Austria and Switzerland (D/A/CH).
Jack Wolfskin said it is achieving an ‘ever-increasing share of its turnover outside Germany’, so Klein, who has for many years been in charge of Central Europe including the German-speaking regions, will now focus on boosting this growth further. The French market in particular, with the development of the French wholesale structure, will be his future focus. In addition, he will also look to expand sales structures in Eastern Europe and Scandinavia.
El Mahmoud will be taking on some of the tasks formerly assigned to Klein in her role as senior manager sales D/A/CH. El Mahmoud will continue building on the ongoing growth of Jack Wolfskin in German-speaking countries and Switzerland and will expand the brand’s leading position in the market still further.
Andreas Keller, who has until now been responsible for some of the major key accounts in Germany, will be taking up El Mahmoud’s previous post as sales manager for apparel in Germany.
Markus Boetsch, managing director for sales at Jack Wolfskin, said: “The impressive growth of our brand requires additional responsibilities in sales so that Jack Wolfskin can continue to meet the needs of retailers and franchisers.”
