His strong business acumen, thoughtful strategic approach and marketing vision have provided tremendous value for our brand portfolio, as well as the entire EMEA leadership team. I am sure that he will play a central role in building an even stronger future for the Icebreaker brand,” Martino Scabbia Guerrini, group president, VF EMEA said.
