"The international growth opportunities, strategic positioning and state-of-the-art technology of Internet stores are unique," said Bubenheim on his arrival. With sales growth of more than 20 percent this year, Internetstores combines his preference for fast-growing international companies with his personal passion for biking and outdoor, Bubenheim continued.
