After two years with the ECCO Group, Mike Redwood has decided to return to the UK to continue his studies and extend his activities into other fields. He will end his employment with ECCO Leather BV as of March 31, 2003.

Redwood will keep a close connection to the ECCO Group in areas of education and EU-related projects. He made an important contribution to a very difficult start to their R&D department and leather sales when the organization moved into their new complex in Dongen in the Netherlands.

Leather sales will come under the responsibility of Panos Mytaros and R&D, as previously reported, under Arthur Jones.

Mike Redwood says: ‘It has been a privilege to be involved in ECCO’s new development in Holland which I am sure will make a great contribution to the future of ECCO in terms of technology and innovation, as well as to the leather industry as a whole. I wish it every success.’
