As managing director, Julia Christina Hummel (30), will take over further managerial functions within the division Kangaroos at Bernd Hummel Holding. Previously, the graduate of business administration, who was appointed as managing director next to her father Bernd D. Hummel and her sister Anne-Katrin Hummel in 2008, was responsible for establishing and managing the Flip Flop stores in Amsterdam as well as the segment e-commerce for the brands Flip Flop and Kangaroos.

In the future, Julia Hummel will also be in charge of the divisions licensing, communication, public relations and marketing as well as the collection.

Her primary aim is not only to keep the holding in family hands, but also to develop the brand Kangaroos on the basis of the recent restructuring,” her father, Bernd D. Hummel, said.
