On the positive side, our operations in Finland and England continue to perform well. At the same time we have good cost control. Now I look forward to working with the team at Björn Borg to set a clear direction and to increase our focus on consumers. Let’s go!” says Henrik Bunge, the new CEO of Björn Borg.
