The Board of Directors of ODLO Sports has named the Swede Jonas Ottosson (52) as the new CEO of the Group. Ottosson was previously the CEO of Peak Performance for twelve years and successfully built this brand into a leader within the industry. He will succeed Andreas Kessler who resigned at the end of last year and will leave the company end of June.

Jonas Ottosson will take over as CEO of ODLO Sports Group in early fall 2012. Previously, Jonas Ottosson was the CEO of Peak Performance from 1999 to 2011, after having been the company’s International Head of Sales and Deputy CEO since 1989. Under his leadership, Peak Performance positioned itself as a strong and visible brand with an uncompromising focus on high-quality products. Peak Performance’s impressive and profitable growth during his time as CEO, with revenues growing from around 35 million Euro to around 135 million Euro is a strong statement to his abilities.

“Everything I do has to be done with passion”, says Jonas Ottosson, “and the opportunity to work with the ODLO brand, its exceptional products and the dedicated people of the ODLO organisation is something I am very excited and proud about”.

Odd Roar Lofterød, board member and son of ODLO’s founder, is very pleased with the recruitment: “I am confident that Jonas Ottosson will be an excellent ambassador of our unique ODLO heritage, and that he will further strengthen our brand and contribute to making our products even better”. Jonas Ottosson is married and has three children. He is a sports and outdoor enthusiast and a passionate of all types of ski sports.

ODLO is the inventor of functional sports underwear. As the market and technological leader, ODLO has committed itself to producing the best functional sportswear for people who love exercise - in every weather and at every level of intensity.
