Dave Gatto, an industry veteran who has ran L.A. Gear for several years, replaces Michael Egeck as U.S. president of VF Corp.’s Outdoor Coalition. Egeck has left the group to become chief executive of 7 For All Mankind, the up and coming American luxury jeans brand. Gatto will report to Eric Wiseman, president and chief operating officer of VF, with responsibility for all of the company’s outdoor brands—The North Face, Reef, Vans, Napapijiri, JanSport and Eastpak. John Wilson, previously Reef’s vice president of U.S. sales and apparel, is named president of the surf brand, which was acquired by VF last year. Over in Europe, Richard Mazzega-Ward has been appointed as country manager of Eastpak for the UK and Ireland, based at the brand’s office in West London. Formerly involved with well-known brands such as Diadora and KangaROOS, he acted most recently as British sales manager for Skechers. Meanwhile Toon Kympers, previously marketing manager for JanSport, will act as product manager for packs at Eastpak, based at the brand’s global office in Belgium, reporting to Gilles Laumonier, vice president and general manager.
