Chris Sports, a Swiss distributor for numerous sports, bike and outdoor brands such as Giro, Kari Traa, Keen, Elevenate, Evoc and Mountain Hardwear, is reorganizing its business unit for hardgoods and bike products in the same way as its softgoods/shoes department – with only one sales manager – due to the departure of Hubert Gmür. Phil Walser, previously head of sales for hardgoods & key account manager, takes over the sales management for the hardgoods/bike department. Remo Hasler, who was previously in charge of trade marketing & sales support, is now responsible for key account management of hardgoods and bike products. Hans Zihlmann, manager the hardgoods/bike business unit is convinced that “with the new structure with only one sales manager, we are even more efficient and can make better use of synergies.” Having decided to take on a new challenge, Gmür is leaving Chris Sports on Sept. 30 at his own request.
