Jonas Ottosson, former chief executive of Peak Performance, will take up a similar job at the Odlo Sports Group in mid-September at the latest. Ottosson takes over from Andreas Kessler, who joined the Swiss-based specialist in functional base layers in 2008 as marketing director and became its chief executive the next year. Kessler announced his intention to resign a few months ago and he will be leaving Odlo at the end of this month. Ottosson abruptly left Peak Performance last October, after twelve years as chief executive of the Swedish ski and outdoor apparel company. Under his leadership, the brand's turnover increased from about €35 million to €135 million. Ottosson will move to Switzerland, to work from Odlo's head office near Zug.
