Simon Hull, Managing Director of Zhik's New Zealand distributorship is stepping up to a strategic position on the board of Zhik's global business.

The move is a change of focus for Simon, following his dedicated work with the Zhik distributorship, to further grow and drive the New Zealand market as well as benefit the global business.

As part of the change of structure, the New Zealand distributor operation will be re-incorporated into Zhik's global business. For the consumer most operational aspects will remain the same, with the Zhik NZ Auckland showroom remaining open in Penrose and the NZ personnel remaining in place in the Auckland office.

Simon Hull comments, "I first became involved with the brand as an incredibly passionate user of Zhik clothing in my own sailing endeavours. My on-going increased investment and involvement with the brand is an exciting progression."

The board appointment takes effect from 28th September 2019. Zhik Global CEO, Piet Poelmann, is excited about the opportunities it presents for the New Zealand business, 'I thank the team in New Zealand for the enormous efforts in building Zhik to this great position. New Zealand is a nation of great sailors, hence Zhik feels at home there. With our continued global growth, I am thrilled the same team will be there to service our dealers and customers and help grow Zhik through many championships, the Olympics, and the Americas Cup'.

The Zhik team in both New Zealand and Australian offices are excited to continue to develop and support the needs of the NZ market and help sailors achieve their best in high quality, technical gear that will enhance their performance.
