Customizable running shoe brand, Somnio Running, announced that Saskia Stock has been named Managing Director for Somnio Europe. As head of European sales and marketing, Stock will oversee Somnio’s new office in Zurich, Switzerland, which will service all of the brand’s distributors and direct sales in Europe.

Before joining Somnio, Stock was Head of the International Academy at Masai Marketing and Trading AG where she was responsible for the global medical and biomechanical research work for MBT footwear, a position she held after she managed the brand’s international consumer marketing programs. Prior to her work with MBT, Stock spent almost ten years at Cannondale Europe, where she began her career as a racer and eventually worked her way up to Vice President of European Marketing.

“We are thrilled to have Saskia on our management team,” said Somnio founder, Sean Sullivan. “She has a proven record of success working with brands to establish and grow their European businesses.”

Launched in the summer of 2009, Somnio shoes feature an adjustable component system that creates a custom-fit to match a runner’s unique biomechanics.
