PUMA's CEO to step down at the end of March 2013 Herzogenaurach, Germany, 12 December 2012 - The Administrative Board of PUMA SE announced today that, by mutual agreement, Franz Koch will step down from his position as CEO of PUMA and member of the Group Executive Committee of PPR SA, the main shareholder of PUMA SE, at the end of March 2013. Jochen Zeitz' resignation as Administrative Board Chairman as of December 1, 2012 marks the end of a chapter in the history of PUMA. The company is therefore entering a new phase in its development and is changing its top management structure to take on those challenges. Franz Koch will remain CEO of PUMA until the end of March, and work in close collaboration with the new Chairman of the Administrative Board, Jean-François Palus, also PPR Group Managing Director, in order to secure PUMA's on-going operational transformation and generate profitable growth.
