Fischer Sports GmbH, one of the world’s largest ski manufacturers, has announced restructuring of the US subsidiary based in Auburn, NH effective immediately. Fischer global CEO Franz Foettinger assumes oversight of the US organization in the wake of the departure of former US CEO, Ryan Leach.

“We have released Ryan from his position effective immediately. His responsibilities have been distributed among the existing team at this time,” Foettinger explained.

Key contacts include: Scott Ford (Alpine), Bernhard Harbec (Hockey) and Steve Reeder (Nordic). Each will take care of their respective businesses as Division managers.

With the season fully underway, Fischer continues to focus on dealer fulfillment, upcoming shows, and the continued growth of its brand in the US.
