German womenswear brand Gerry Weber has appointed the founder’s son Ralf Weber as its new chief executive.
Weber, whose father is Gerhard Weber, will take up his new role on 25 February.
Having joined the Gerry Weber board in 2013, Weber is currently responsible for sales and corporate development and will now take on additional duties in his role as chief executive.
He will succeed David Frink who will step down from the chief executive role but will continue to focus on finance, logistics, IT and administration.
The position of the third board member, who is Arnd Buchardt, will remain unchanged. Buchardt will retain responsibility for products, brands and licenses.
Last month, Gerry Weber announced plans to acquire fashion group Hallhuber as part of its expansion strategy.
