In­ter­na­tion­al AG

Dear partners and customers,

The past few weeks have been tough: just less than two months after the end of our in­solv­ency pro­ceed­ings under self-ad­min­is­tra­tion, there was a sur­pris­ing change in the executive board at GERRY WEBER. Only two weeks later, all the issues that had been discussed before are now rendered less important as the world faces the un­pre­ced­en­ted coronavir­us epidemic. In order to overcome this crisis, we must band together more than ever before, both at GERRY WEBER and in society as a whole, and join all available resources to minimize the impact of the coronavir­us on our health and our company.

To deal with the daily changing issues as best as possible, we have set up a coronavir­us task force, whose members are now con­trib­ut­ing their expertise and ex­per­i­ence to maintain all vital struc­tures during this crisis and to be available as contact persons.

Despite all our coming closer together to cope with the current situation, we have to keep our distance phys­ic­ally: the part of our workforce able to work remotely is now in home offices. All employees who have to be on site are trying to keep the minimum distances re­com­men­ded. In our stores and those of our partners, we face the situation that they will be closed for two weeks for the time being through­out Germany. For all these problems we have to find solutions together in a flexible and un­bur­eau­crat­ic way – both in­tern­ally and for our customers and partners.

This is where the col­lect­ive strength and cre­ativ­ity of all people at GERRY WEBER is needed, and we believe in that. We trust in you and that together we will lead GERRY WEBER through this crisis. Thanks to the re­struc­tur­ing during recent months, our company is lean and flexible. And: We all know what it means to adapt quickly to new cir­cum­stances. We remain confident that we can suc­cess­fully maintain this path together with you and continue to firmly believe in GERRY WEBER, the brand and the people.

Alexander Gedat and Florian Frank
