"I have come to value PUMA highly over the last five years of successful cooperation and I would like to thank Jochen Zeitz for his invaluable contribution to PUMA's outstanding development for more than 20 years", said Jean-François Palus.

"PUMA is a fantastic brand and company with highly committed people. I am looking forward to working with management to tap into the huge potential alongside Franz Koch and his PUMA team to become the most desirable and sustainable sportlifestyle company in the world."
