Timberland announces the promotion of Timo Schmidt-Eisenhart following the retirement of Richard O’Rourke as Senior Vice President of International.

Timo Schmidt- Eisenhart becomes President of Timberland EMEA, the newly formed top position under the VF Corporation management. The promotion is effective immediately. He will be reporting directly to Karl Heinz Salzburger, Vice President VF Corporation and Group President International.

Schmidt–Eisenhart has been with the VF group since 2007, working on the Timberland brand since June 2012. Throughout this time, Schmidt-Eisenhart has demonstrated strong leadership skills and been responsible driving strong results for Timberland EMEA as a whole, including managing the transition of the Timberland business into the VF portfolio.

His passion, leadership and business knowledge is key to the continued development of Timberland’s growth strategy in the Outdoor Lifestyle market, routed in men’s footwear, apparel and women’s footwear.

I am deeply honoured by the opportunity to expand the brand’s presence and leverage the VF platform to fuel its growth. There is momentum in this brand, rich in heritage and tradition that this year is celebrating its 40th anniversary. I look forward to the challenge and to working with a talented team that has such strong values of humanity, integrity and excellence. - Timo Schmidt-Eisenhart

Timberland would like to thank Richard O’Rourke for his contribution to the brand over the last 23 years. His commitment and leadership has been unparalleled.
