Dutch denim brand Garcia has appointed Ronald Kempke as new country manager for The Netherlands, effective from the beginning of the month. He takes responsibility for all topics around brand positioning and pushing forward Garcia’s expansion in the Dutch market. Kempke’s professional background is linked with well-known names such as Nike and Gaastra, where he worked as sales manager and key account manager respectively.

Kempke is the fourth addition to Garcia’s team since beginning of 2015. Previously, the label hired Stephan Falkenberg in Bavaria (Germany) as area sales manager adults; Patrick Werthmann in the same position as Falkenberg for German regions Hamburg, Schleswig Holstein, Bremen and Niedersachsen; and eventually Bettina Salutari in Austria as sales representative for the kids collections.

Garcia forecasts an earnings growth of 15% for the current fiscal year.
