Hugo Boss appoints chief sales officer
Fashion brand Hugo Boss has appointed Oliver Timm as its new chief sales officer.
Due to take up his role on 1 January, Timm will be responsible for the company’s own retail operations as well as its wholesale and ecommerce businesses.
Timm’s career has included over 20 years working with PVH where he was managing director for the German market from 2005 to 2014. In 2016, he was appointed as chief commercial officer of PVH with responsibility for driving commercial strategies for the Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein brands across the EMEA region.
Hermann Waldemer, chairman of the the Hugo Boss supervisory board, said: “I am very happy that, with the addition of Oliver Timm, our managing board is now complete. The depth and breadth of his expertise in retail, wholesale and e-commerce make him the perfect candidate for a position of this significance at Hugo Boss.”
Now that any available board positions have been filled, Hugo Boss has also confirmed that its chief executive Mark Langer will move to a consultative role on 16 July, which is two months earlier than planned. He will also vacate his seat on the managing board.
Hugo Boss announced earlier this month that Daniel Grieder had been appointed as the company’s chief executive for a period of five years starting on 1 June 2021. The company’s chief financial officer Yves Müller will serve as the managing board’s spokesman until Grieder takes up his position.
