Starting mid-November, Sven Hugo Joosten will be responsible for all activities of the Bestseller brands (Jack&Jones, Vero Moda, Selected etc.) in Austria and Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) as new country manager at the Bestseller Group. He succeeds Alexander Korosec, who decided to turn to new challenges outside of Bestseller.

Before taking over the position at Bestseller, Joosten collected experience working for the womenswear wholesaler Magda Rose GmbH &Co KG/ Jones as international sales and marketing director and for Don Gil and Philips in various marketing and sales positions.

“With his many years of experience in the fields of marketing and sales, Sven Hugo Joosten will bring us forward in the execution of our company goals. We are glad to have found a charismatic leader for Bestseller, in Sven. With his knowledge of the market and his international background, we are sure that Austria and the CEE region are in good hands,” says Lars Pedersen, country manager Germany at Bestseller.
