After two years of service as Mammut’s brand manager, Jürgen Schütte, will leave Mammut Sports Group (MSG) in August. Schütte’s reasons for this move are of a private nature. The former K2 Europe executive has been living seperated from his family during his time in Switzerland. So far, MSG’s brand managers have been reporting to Michael Gyssler, the chief marketing officer of the group. While Stefan Merkt and Daniel Hähner keep their positions as brand managers of Raichle and Toko respectively, Mammut will no longer have a brand manager after Schütte’s departure. The job will be done by the senior product managers Adrian Huber (apparel) and Carsten von Birckhahn (hardgoods). A new manager within MSG is Ulf Sänger, a former executive of the German importer of high-end outdoor brands Invia (Mountain Equipment, Gregory, Garmont, Bridgedale). Effective beginning of this year, Invia sold its own LED lamp brand Lucido to MSG. In this context, Sänger moved from Invia to MSG where he now co-ordinates the work between the Swiss headquarters and the foreign subsidiaries in Germany, Norway (Ajungilak), Japan and the USA.
