German mainstream womenswear brand Gerry Weber has appointed the son of the group’s founder Ralf Weber as chief executive, effective from February 25.
He will take over from David Frink, who will continue to run finance, logistics, IT, administration and human resources.
Ralf Weber joined the three-man managing board in 2013 and is head of sales and corporate development, with responsibility for national and international wholesale and retail.
The third board member, Arnd Buchardt, continues with his responsibility for products, brands and licences.
The Halle Westfalen-based company recently agreed to buy fellow German women’s fashion group Hallhuber and is looking to return to the menswear market as part of its growth strategy.
Ralf’s father Gerhad Weber stepped down last year.
