Citing personal reasons, Klaus Bettermann has left the Berkemann Group, where he had been serving as chief financial officer since February. The 54-year-old manager had been previously acting for many years as one of the top managers of Marc Shoes, which is now a property of the German group. His position at Berkemann is being taken over by Heidi Kupke, who has been running another brand of the group, Solidus, since March 2013.
