Martyn Bowen is Puma's new director for EMEA

German sports brand Puma has appointed former professional athlete Martyn Bowen as its new managing director for the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) region. Volfango Bondi, who used to head that branch, is set to leave the company.

20 years at Puma

Bowen has been with the company for twenty years already, going through the ranks as export manager for Eastern Europe, managing director for Austria and managing director for Eastern Europe. Puma hopes his appointment as EMEA's managing director will help increase efficiency between regions and its sales teams.

 

Kering, Puma's French parent company, divulged recently that its sports brand had managed an 825 million euro turnover in its first quarter of 2015, which represents a 13 % increase.
