Sebastian Streck transfers from Esprit to Bench, becoming chief product officer (CPO), effective 1 March, 2015. In this newly created position he will be responsible for the entire product spectrum of the brand, including the field of design. Streck will report to Bruno Sälzer, who became the new chairman and CEO of Bench on 1 December, 2014.

Streck has been with Esprit for eleven years and became global business manager of the Esprit brand Edc in 2008. He is, among other things, in charge of the global creation and delivery of the collection, leading the design department and product management.

With Streck, Bench is strengthening its management level. Last year, Nathalie Suessmann took over the newly created position of chief marketing officer and Sebastian Prallet started in the newly created position of chief wholesale officer.
