DK – The Danish textile specialist, Clipper Corporate Wear, has a new Executive Director. With immediate effect, Kristian Ikast is responsible for the further strategic development of the knitwear specialists, which recently took over its Danish competitor, Belika, in April. Ikast has well-founded knowledge of the retail trade and textile industry and has worked among others for Magasin, Bestseller, Ecco and Tommy Hilfiger in the past. Furthermore, he also disposes of experience in the field of company optimisation, which, particularly after the merger with Belika, Clipper will now benefit from. “I will initially focus on our core competence and on our most important markets – we will improve in the areas that we are already good in today and will uphold the values that Clipper stands for,” stated Ikast.
