Mammut appoints new CFO

Mammut, the iconic Swiss mountain sports company, has appointed Dr Oliver Merz as its new Chief Financial Officer (CFO), effective May 2024.

With nearly two decades of experience in finance and digitalization, Oliver is set to support the acceleration of the Mammut growth path as a leading mountain sports brand.

As CFO, Oliver Merz will be responsible for Mammut’s Controlling, Finance, Accounting, Tax, Legal & Compliance, and IT. His proven track record in scaling companies, most recently as CFO and Member of the Management Board at LUQOM GROUP, will be instrumental in propelling Mammut’s growth. Previously, Oliver held leadership roles at ProSiebenSat.1 Media SE and worked as a management consultant at Roland Berger and Oliver Wyman.

Mammut was acquired by Telemos Capital in 2021 with a plan to drive international growth and improve profitability. The company has made significant progress with this transformation and with Oliver’s appointment, Mammut gains a leader whose expertise will help drive its ‘Rise with the Mountain’ philosophy, empowering the company to reach new heights.

Heiko Schäfer, CEO of Mammut, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Oliver to our team. His growth-oriented mindset and finance expertise make him the perfect fit as we continue to drive profitable growth, expand globally, and strengthen our position as a leading mountain sports brand.”
