Dick Meckfessel, who ran Mephisto’s US sales subsidiary before working for Murtosa, is now handling sales of Mephisto’s Allrounder brand in the country. In Germany, the fast-growing Allrounder brand is handled by the agents of Salewa, an outdoor brand that doesn’t have a footwear line yet.

Colin Clark, the British executive who formerly led Rockport’s UK business and then all its sales outside the USA, has taken a sabbatical. Andy Loeber is running the Northern European business for the brand out of Reebok’s UK and soon-to-be European headquarters in Bolton, England. Southern Europe is run out of Canton, Massachussets by Steve Holt, who helped Clark for Latin America.
