MILAN — Timberland’s evolution into a full-fledged lifestyle brand for men, women and children is top of mind for Timo Schmidt-Eisenhart, who joined the brand as vice president and general manager for Europe last June.
In an exclusive interview, Schmidt-Eisenhart expressed what he considers a “realistic” point of view, while remaining unfazed by the challenges in the European market. Unlike several competitors, Timberland is performing well in the region, said the Swiss-German executive.
