Karl Toosbuy dies

8 June 2004

Karl Toosbuy, founder of the Ecco footwear empire, has died. He will always be remembered as an extraordinary entrepreneur. With his wife he founded Ecco 41 years ago in Denmark and, since then, he has spent every minute of his life building the business he loved, expanding into other countries and even building his own tanneries. It was his greatest wish that the company he created would be continued after his death as a family-owned and family-run business and this will be done under the leadership of his daughter Hanni Toosbuy Kasprzak.
