Salomon’s management presented details of its restructuring plan to the company’s Social and Economic Committee (CSE) on May 3. The plan envisages cutting 82 jobs out of 738 at the company’s head office in Annecy, in France’s southeast. The cuts are mostly due to the closing of ski resorts in many countries during the pandemic and the related crisis of the ski economy. In parallel, however, the company also plans to create 59 new jobs at its Annecy Design Center. The overall strategy consists of reinforcing the brand’s leading position in winter sports equipment further while developing other segments with high growth potential like trail running, outdoor, road running and sport style. The restructuring measures were presented by Jean-Marc Pambet, who recently agreed to resume his position as CEO of Salomon, following the resignation of Michael White. The measures are expected to be implemented in September. Salomon is part of Amer Sports, which is controlled by Anta Sports Products.
