Ben Sherman Germany has named Christian Schütt, 34, Country Manager. He succeeds the role vacated by Ricardo Meyer. The former Key Account/Retail Manager Germany officially takes over the position he has been representing since May. Effectively immediately as well, Christian Trimborn, 42, a former Key Account Manager, takes over the position of Sales Manager Germany and will together with Michael Stührenberg, Sales Manager Europe, support Christian Schütt in his new role. With the new top management Ben Sherman is focusing on its retail expansion with flagship stores and forging a clearer brand identity. The company says more shops are to follow in cities such as Hamburg, Frankfurt and Munich and that it will increase its premium retailer and key accounts businesses.
