Patagonia has signed up a new distributor in Poland, Raven Outdoor, in a deal arranged by Michael Plank's Sports-Contacts agency. Based in Krakow and founded seven years ago, Raven Outdoor has launched international brands such as Smartwool and Black Diamond on the Polish market. Andrea Tomasini, who has been heading up Patagonia's Italian subsidiary, is now acting as interim manager of Patagonia Europe, following the recent death of Holger Bismann.
