Global sportswear manufacturer Puma has appointed Nina Graf-Vlachy as new head of global strategy, with immediate effect.
She will directly report to PUMA CEO Bjørn Gulden. Nina Graf-Vlachy, who holds a doctorate in chemistry, joined the brand’s global strategy team in 2013, after having worked as a project manager at the Boston Consulting Group.
Previous head of global strategy, Arne Freundt –who has lead Puma’s repositioning for the last 3,5 years-, has been promoted to global director retail and ecommerce at Puma. In his new role, he will continue to directly report to the company’s CEO. The retail department was previously led by Stefan Meyrat, who has recently left the company.
