Change is in the air at Jacobson Group. It was recently announced that Harvey Jacobson, the current Managing Director of UK-based group that owns brands including Gola and Frank Wright, will step down from his position towards the middle of the year. Still set to remain active within the company, Jacobson will retain the position of chairman instead, while Tony Evans will take over as managing director.

“In my new role as chairman, I will get the opportunity to spend more time on policies, strategies and acquisitions. The day-to-day running of the business I will hand over to the new managing director to be, Tony Evans, who’s managed Gola in the past few years,” said Harvey Jacobson.
