Following Mathias Boenke’s departure from the executive board of Intersport Germany in October, Katja Erbe, head of category management, will now be leaving the five-country retail group as well. In her position, she reported directly to Boenke. Her functions will be taken over by the company’s chief operating officer, Frank Geisler. Erbe took charge of the newly created category management division in April 2019. She had joined Intersport International Corp. (IIC) one year earlier as European general manager for The Athlete’s Foot, followed by a stint as head of strategic projects. Previously, Erbe worked for Adidas for almost 19 years in various management positions, including senior sales director for the Eastern Europe region and senior brand director of Reebok for the Central Europe region. She started at Adidas as key account manager for IIC.
