He has been working in the sports, outdoor and casual footwear industry with great passion for more than 15 years now. Christian joined Gore as an associate in the marketing area in Germany in 1995 and later on served as European marketing leader as well as European sales leader. After working on the Fabrics reorganization project in 2007, he transitioned to his current Global role. Since then, the business has achieved significant global momentum by addressing new regional as well as category opportunities.

He earned his Diplom-Kaufmann in business administration—with a focus on strategic management and marketing from the University of Augsburg, Bavaria.

Being a true “sports maniac”, he enjoys free-skiing, trail running and the outdoors. His interests also include traveling with his family to experience new cultures and regions.
