Achim Leidel, the current Country Manager DACH at Scholl Footwear, is leaving the company effective April 1, 2012. The 43-year-old has reached this decision of his own free will and wants to rise to new professional challenges.

Leidel has been employed at Scholl Footwear since 2007 and contributed largely to the enterprise’s image switch from a traditional orthopedic shoe brand to more lifestyle-oriented one. Under his guidance, projects such as a design collaboration with Diego Dolcini and the installation of a temporary pop-up store in Berlin have been carried out.

Until the nomination of an official successor, Achim Leidel will transitionally be substituted by Marco Alborghetti, Sales Director Show Trade Range Europe.
