Fischer Sports has appointed Jan-Hein Habes as its new managing director in charge of sales, marketing and production. Habes, who was Burton Europe’s marketing director until 2001, most recently served in a similar position for Tommy Hilfiger’s ski and sailing division. He replaces Gregor Dietachmayr, who left Fischer earlier this year and will collaborate with the other managing director, Günter Kitzmüller, who is Fischer’s chief financial officer.
