COPENHAGEN, Feb 26 (Reuters) - The chief executive of Danish jewellery maker Pandora on Tuesday denied he had plans to take the helm at German sportswear firm Puma.
“I’m a happy and proud CEO of Pandora. I think that’s all I have to say about that,” Bjoern Gulden said in a conference call on the company’s fourth quarter results.
Asked specifically if talk of a move to Puma was not true, Gulden replied: “Yes”.
German monthly Manager Magazin reported on Monday that Gulden would take the top job at Puma.
Puma has yet to name a successor of CEO Franz Koch, who will quit at the end of March. (Reporting by Shida Chayesteh; Writing by Jonathan Gould in Frankfurt; Editing by Louise Heavens)
