Philipp Rossner and Thomas Neumann to strengthen management team of the SIGNA Sports Group

Europe’s leading sports E-commerce platform, the SIGNA Sports Group, continues to grow and has strengthened its management team, led by CEO Stephan Zoll and CFO Gerhard Willi, with the appointments of Philipp Rossner as CSO and Thomas Neumann as CTO.

As the new Chief Strategy Officer (CSO) of the SIGNA Sports Group, Philipp Rossner is responsible for Strategy, Business Development and M&A with a focus on further expanding the Group’s online platform.

“The positioning of these leading sports e-commerce providers, in a highly attractive market with strong online transfor-mation all under the SIGNA Sports Group brand, was something I found very excit-ing right from the start”, says the new CSO.

Merging the Group’s Business Intelli-gence, Marketing, Sales, and Logistics divisions will sustainably accelerate the double-digit organic growth of the current year. On top of this, the continuous de-velopment of the platform will generate additional growth by complementary ac-quisitions.

Philipp Rossner was previously CEO of Brands4Friends, Germany’s leading online shopping club for Fashion & Lifestyle with more than 8 million members and over one million app-downloads.

At the beginning of July, SIGNA Sports Group has appointed its long-term head of IT Thomas Neumann as the new Chief Technical Officer (CTO). Neumann is consid-ered the architect and designer of the platform technology of the sports online holdings.

Today SIGNA Sports Group is one of the technologically leading and highest turnover sport E-commerce platforms in Europe. Thomas Neumann has more than 15 years of experience in the E-commerce sector. Amongst others, he was responsible as consultant for IT and technology at Zalando and home24.

As the present CTO of the SIGNA Sports Group, he is responsible for a state-of-the-art technology to support the company’s further international expansion plans.

“The SIGNA Sports Group is going to expand its strong market position in Europe by way of aggressive growth. In the sectors Bike, Outdoor, Tennis, Team sports & Ath-leisure, we hold market leading positions with our companies. With our “Category Champions” we already cover more than 70% of the relevant sports market in Eu-rope. Being in a position to take the lead in shaping the key international markets in the online world of sports is a great challenge, and, at the same time, a unique op-portunity. With Philipp Rossner and Thomas Neumann we have found two top-level experts to advance our expansion strategy of the SIGNA Sports Group”, says CEO Stephan Zoll.
