Trisport has created the new position of chief operating officer (COO) to cope with the expansion of Kettler, the German home fitness brand, for which it obtained the rights for all over Europe except the U.K. at the end of 2019. The Swiss company has appointed Christian Burgener, 49, to fill the new role in order to build up a more efficient supply chain. Like Kristijan Varvodic, a 33-year-old manager who was recently named to the new position of chief financial officer, he will report to Trisport’s CEO, Melanie Lauer. Burgener worked most recently as senior manager at a consulting firm, Zellweger, with a focus on strategy, processes, organization and digitalization.
