BOULDER, Colo. -- Stefan Vollbach, most recently International Director of Marketing & Sales at multinational sports company HEAD, has been appointed to the newly created role of Global Brand Director of Skins(TM). This German native has progressed through nearly all stages of the marketing chain in the sports field: from retail seller and buyer, to department manager and national product manager, to Director of Marketing and Sales. He is also recognized as an industry leader, having given numerous lectures on strategic brand positioning.

Vollbach recently toured Skins'(TM) international operations, including a stop in Australia where the company was founded, and is eager to continue expanding on the success of the world's first and leading compression wear company. "I am excited about the enormous potential of the Skins(TM) brand and its products. We will work hard to maintain the Australian culture, a key component to our overseas success," says Vollbach. "As a very successful company, Skins(TM) has built a credible reputation among athletes and in the medical community, resulting in a high demand for its premium compression products. Our next challenge is to ensure that all types of exercisers and sports players understand the scientific benefits of Skins(TM) -- the only rigorously tested compression gear on the market," he continues.

Jaimie Fuller, CEO of Skins(TM), believes Vollbach's appointment will take the company to the next level. "By hiring Stefan Vollbach, we have obtained a key player in the sporting goods industry. He will manage the top brand and marketing department at Skins(TM) and next year will work from the new global headquarters in Switzerland," says Fuller.
