ABOUT CHRISSY DORN
Chrissy began her career in 1983 in renowned 5-star luxury hotels, spending eight years working abroad in France and the UK. She speaks several languages (German, English, French, Italian, Spanish, just started with Portugese). Her many foreign travels enabled her to quickly understand different cultures and the diverse clients she works with.
In 1987, Chrissy followed her love for nature and rock-climbing and switched to the outdoor & sports industry, contributing to major expansion of reputable outdoor brands, amongst whom Patagonia and Timberland. She later ran her own wholesale agency across the UK and the Benelux, with brands like Wild Roses and Lowa. In her role as EU sales manager for Mountain Hardwear, Chrissy made a particularly strong contribution to the brand's presence across Europe.
In the early 2000s, when Puma became the world's most desirable sports lifestyle brand, Chrissy increased turnover in her categories as one of three International Product Line Managers for Apparel in double-digit growth rates up to a yearly volume of >60 Million Euro.
In 2007, Chrissy founded her own company, offering sustainable business development consultancy services and PR & Marketing. Her portfolio shows reputable brands, mainly names of innovative leaders and industry mavericks with a strong ethical, environmental and sustainable ethos, amongst whom Nikwax, Páramo, Rab, Lowe Alpine, Timbuk2, Hydro Flask and Ticket to the Moon.
In 2019/20, Chrissy has had the great honour to work with world class accustic guitarist duo Café del Mundo, managing a number of international tours, including the initialization of the recording of their album "Famous Tracks" at Abbey Rd Studios, London. Her forever existing love for music expanded Chrissy’s view on all the many things that the word “sustainability" touches, one of which is the enduring joy that authentic music brings to our hearts and connects people.
