German company Pro Feet Functional Wear GmbH, responsible among other things for the H.A.D. headwear and multifunctional scarf brand, has appointed Sebastian Reuthal as its new managing director. He takes over from Alexander Klinger, who had assumed operational management of the sales, marketing and logistics divisions as CEO in 2014. Reuthal, a product design graduate, has been with Pro Feet for more than eight years as product and marketing manager, and previously worked for years on an agency basis for several brands. In the coming months, he will focus primarily on H.A.D. and expand production at the company’s facility in Germany. “Our production site in Rodenbach is the foundation for innovative and high-quality headwear,” Reuthal said. “By supporting the local economy, we are simultaneously reducing our environmental footprint to a minimum.”

New on board at Pro Feet is Patrick König, who is supporting the team with immediate effect as the new product manager. The trained garment technician and product designer has already worked for well-known companies in the consumer goods industry as well as design agencies in the past. Vanessa Küchler strengthens the marketing and design department. As an experienced marketing and media businesswoman, she was most recently in charge of social media management for a med-tech company. Elena Wörner and Marion Schwing (both experienced office staff) complete the in-house customer service team around Birgit Riese.
