MBT has selected Ben May to be its new managing director for the U.K. and Ireland. He's a former MBT retailer, and he also oversees the company's operations in Portugal, Andorra and Spain. MBT opened five new stores in the U.K. in the last few weeks, and it is said to be planning 50 to 65 new openings in the next four to five years. The U.K. and Ireland were previously overseen by Nico von Offeren, a former Dutch manager of Nike, who will concentrate on managing the Benelux countries.
