German Outdoor Brand Presents Successor for Harris-Jensbach

Richard Collier will become the new CEO of Jack Wolfskin from the first of December. The Idstein-based company has officially confirmed this. It had been clear since the summer that Melody Harris-Jensbach would give up the executive chair.

Richard Collier joins Jack Wolfskin from Helly Hansen. The 47-year-old was most recently Chief Product Officer at Jack Wolfskin. At Jack Wolfskin, he will now "be responsible for the successful further development of the strategic brand positioning and the further internationalisation of the company.“.

This is what the US Callaway Golf Company wrote in a statement. The company group had taken over Jack Wolfskin at the end of 2019. Harris-Jensbach's resignation had been certain since the summer of 2020.

Harris-Jenbach had one of her last public appearances for Jack Wolfskin at the ISPO Re.Start Days. The company and Harris-Jenbach were working on an amicable succession plan, it was said at the time.

Harris-Jenbach had acquired the Jack Wolfskin brand in 2014 with annual sales of 345 million euros. Since then, this figure has fluctuated and stood at 319 million euros in 2019. The company also thanked Harris-Jenbach for making Jack Wolfskin accessible to a new and younger target group. She will remain with the brand as a consultant.
