Dow Jones Newswires: Puma’s new CEO Arne Freundt takes reins immediately as incumbent moves to Adidas top job


Puma SE said Tuesday that Arne Freundt will take over immediately as chief executive, ahead of schedule, after incumbent CEO Bjorn Gulden was named to lead rival Adidas AG.

However, with Tuesday’s announcement that Mr. Gulden will become Adidas ADS, +1.69% chief from Jan. 1, Mr. Freundt will take over with immediate effect, Puma said.
