Two top managers of Deichmann are leaving the company. Karsten Schütt, managing director in charge of information technology and logistics, has decided to quit after 17 years with the group. Another managing director in charge of purchasing, Wolfram Hall, will leave the company by mutual consent after four years in the job. For the time being, another managing director, Manfred Kroneder, will handle the responsibilities of both executives. Kroneder had joined the international German-based shoe-retailing group at the beginning of this year after working for Douglas, the big German chain of cosmetics and perfumery shops.
