Diesel has created a new regional Diesel Europe unit, run by Joanna Onland, for a more direct and consistent management of its key accounts. Onland has been with Diesel for five years, first as general manager for the Benelux countries and then as regional director for Southern Europe. Thorsten Link, head of Central Europe, is leaving the company, while Johnny Hewlett, head of Northern Europe, is reportedly set to move to a bigger role. Pablo Sueiras, commercial director for Northern Europe, has been promoted to the newly created position of global retail operations director. In another strategic move, the company had appointed Giuseppe Caeran as general manager of its shoe and leathergoods division, Props. He had previously worked for Salomon, Gucci and Richemont Italia. Dario Predonzan, commercial manager of Props, has left the company.
