Thomas Henningsen leaves PUMA

By Administrator |

PUMA Travel Retail's Global Travel Retail Manager Thomas Henningsen has advised that he is leaving the company after two years in which he is proud that the company has established itself in the travel retail


In a brief statement, he said: ‘The time has come for me to hand over the PUMA Travel Retail torch after two successful and unforgettable years. During the past months we, as a company, have been evaluating how we can optimise and improve our structures and strategic business areas. This process has been necessary in order to identify new synergies which will make us better equipped and better prepared in taking on new challenges.

‘This process has also involved our PUMA Travel Retail department. As a result, I will be resigning from my role as Global Travel Retail Manager as of April 30th in order to take on new challenges outside the company.

‘On behalf of PUMA I would therefore like to take this opportunity to personally thank each one of you for supporting and believing in our PUMA vision. I have had the pleasure of working with you for the past two years. It has indeed been a challenging yet unforgettable journey. A journey which has also been unique due to the fantastic people we have partnered with along the way.

‘We have received support, guidance and help in ways we never thought possible. Thanks to you we can celebrate that PUMA is a success in Travel Retail. During the past two years we have increased our points-of-sale by more than 90%. We have increased our footprint by around 100%. Despite the current economic climate we are continuing our expansion in key international airports around the world.’

Henningsen said he is handing over his responsibilities to colleagues 'who will be taking PUMA to the next level in Travel Retail'. He added that the hand over process is taking place now and more information will be available after April 30.
