IC Companys, parent of Peak Performance and other sportswear brands, has appointed a new chief financial officer shortly after naming Mads Ryder as its chief executive officer. The new CFO is Rud Trabjerg Pedersen, who has been in charge of finance for Levi Strauss' operations in Europe, the Middle East and Africa since 2010. He previously worked for Astra Zeneca, Cadbury and Deloitte & Touche. The present CFO, Chris Bigler, quit IC Companys at the end of August. The new one will probably start around Dec. 1.
