The Bos Group is adding the distribution of CAT Footwear in the German-speaking and Benelux countries to that of other brands of Wolverine Worldwide - Keds, Pro Keds, Sperry and Wolverine – under a new distribution contract starting on Jan. 1. Bos is setting up a new fully owned subsidiary, American Sneakers, based in the Netherlands, to take care of these brands under the management of Pierre Lefebvre, who has been in charge of Bos' international operations since 2006. Bosum Trading, the partly owned German company that was taking care of the German-speaking countries, will act as a “super-agency” of American Sneakers.
