Dr. Martens has appointed Chris Cavanagh as manager in charge of distributors for Europe and the Middle East. Before joining Dr. Martens, Cavanagh worked as director of product and marketing for Europe, the Middle East and Africa at Deckers Brands. After appointing Leslie Lane as the new president of Dr. Martens for the U.S. and the Americas, the company announced a new president for Europe in March. Like Lane, he will report to Steve Murray, who ran Deckers EMEA before he became chief executive of the British footwear brand's parent company, Airwear International, at the end of 2014.
