Bradshaw Taylor, the U.K.-based distributor, expects to sign soon a new European distribution agreement to make up for the loss of its contract for Royal Robbins. In view of this and the strong growth of its business with Sherpa Adventure in Central Europe, it is boosting the management of its German office, elevating Wolfgang Jahn to the position of head of sales for Europe and hiring Sven Kreitner to assist him as key accounts manager for Germany.
