Reno wants to set an example with the reopening of its store in Kiel, Germany, at the end of February. The store, encompassing 2,100 square meters, will offer shoe collections for kids, women and men. The store was conceived by Thomas Ridder, who joined the expanded executive board of the Hamm Reno Group on May 2, with responsibility for the domestic and foreign retail operations of the group. For personal reasons, Ridder has asked for a suspension of his duties for several months. The company's chief executive, Matthias Händle, will assume his tasks.
