Some media reported in the last few weeks that Antoine Sathicq, formerly with Adidas, Le Coq Sportif and Odlo, has been appointed chief sales officer of Babolat, where he would be taking the place of Giovanni Pietra, who left the post several months ago. That's what his LinkedIn profile says, but Sathicq hasn't confirmed the move to us. Babolat says it doesn't wish to comment at this stage on his appointment or on recent rumors about a major reorganization of the company's staff.
