The supervisory board of Pume SE has decided to create a dedicated board position for sourcing and has appointed Anne-Laure Descours as chief sourcing officer and member of management board of Puma effective February 1, 2019. Descours joined Puma in 2012 and has been overseeing the product development and sourcing activities of all global apparel since then.

Descours has almost 30 years of experience in the sourcing industry. Prior to Puma, she worked for international sourcing organisations, such as Li & Fung and Otto International, all based in Hong Kong, said a media release by the company. As chief sourcing officer, she will also be responsible for sustainability within the Puma Group. She will continue to be primarily based in Hong Kong.

Puma’s chief operating officer Lars Radoor Sørensen has together with the supervisory board decided to step down as board member of Puma SE, effective January 31, 2019, to pursue other interests. Lars joined Puma in 2013 and was appointed managing director in 2014. As chief operating officer, he was in charge of sourcing, IT, and logistics. IT and logistics will now be reporting to Puma’s chief financial officer Michael Lämmermann. (PC)
