As the Eurobike 2016 festival begins, Christophe Weissenberger assumes his new position as CEO Marketing and Sales at the uvex sports group. He takes over from Alexander Selch, who left the company in March by mutual consent. Michael Winter, Managing Partner of the uvex group: “We are very pleased that we were able to convince Christophe Weissenberger to join the uvex group. He is a marketing and sales strategist within the sector, and his years of international experience in product and brand management will help to successfully drive forward and position the uvex and Alpina brands.”
Most recently, Christophe Weissenberger spent six years at Schöffel Sportbekleidung GmbH, where he worked as a fully authorised officer and was a member of the management with responsibility for marketing and sales. The new CEO comments on his new role at uvex sports group: “uvex is committed to protecting people. This applies just as much to amateur sportsmen as it does to professional athletes. I am fully behind this mission as well as the group’s unique and authentic values.”
One of Christophe’s primary objectives is to press ahead with the group’s innovative strength on the market for ski and sports eyewear as well as ski, cycle and riding helmets. Michael Winter: “We wish him every success in achieving his goals!”
