Premium German equestrian clothing manufacturer Cavallo has announced Brigitte Weeke-Therling as its new owner and CEO.
Following a financial re-structure, the 51-year-old equestrian enthusiast, who has more than 25 years’ experience as a business woman in the fashion industry and breeds sport horses, is now at the helm.
“I have used Cavallo products for a long time, so I fully understand the history of the brand as a premium equestrian clothing supplier,” said Brigitte. “The success of Cavallo is based on its people and I will continue to use this as a basis for growth as we drive the brand forward. Cavallo’s craftmanship and technical expertise will also remain central and I’m very much looking forward to building on the strong customer and supplier relationships we have as well.”
“We’re very much looking forward to working with Brigitte,” said Simon Middleton, Managing Director of Zebra Products, the exclusive distributor of Cavallo in the UK. “When we met her recently in Germany to view the SS19 collection it was clear that she has lots of fresh ideas and had really listened to the market’s feedback about how Cavallo could be further improved. Cavallo is a hugely important part of the Zebra portfolio and we have no doubt that the brand will retain the style and elegance that has become its hallmark under Brigitte’s leadership.”
