Hi-Tec Sports has appointed Glenn Bennington as Sales Director of its UK subsidiary. With over 19 years of experience within the footwear industry, initially with adidas and Fila, Bennington joins from the Universal Footwear Corporation where he worked as UK Sales Director as a licensee with a portfolio of brands including Umbro, La Gear, Quick, Diadora and British Knights.
Bennington: “The UK sports market has been a rollercoaster ride for many brands, with some enjoying the lime light for too short a period before returning to relative obscurity. Against this backdrop, Hi-Tec has performed with a consistency some brands can only dream of. More recently, Hi-Tec has made great strides in categories such as Outdoor, Golf and Indoor Court, and I am delighted to be joining such a highly motivated team at such an exciting time in the brands development.”
Bennington will be replacing Ricky Chandler who has now joined the independent buying group STAG.
