Quote from the CEO

“Our biggest victory during the quarter was how we activated our brand in the ‘Dear Rival’ campaign. We reached over 3.5 million consumers in Sweden and the Netherlands and raised their awareness of Björn Borg as a sports fashion brand by over 100 percent. Also, I am proud to have received an award during the quarter as the year’s most health-conscious manager, which of course was a team effort. I have seen how individuals can make a difference, and that healthy individuals make an even bigger difference,” noted CEO Henrik Bunge.
