I’m most excited to have a true strategic partner – a partner that can bring a lot to the table and help us learn, grow and evolve. I must share that I’ve been very impressed by the enthusiasm for change at adidas. Since early 2015, they have expressed – internally and externally – that consumer centricity, innovation and cutting-edge thinking is a top priority. I’m eager to be a part of such thinking and really make things happen. I think it’s pretty rare to have the opportunity to be part of such change and movement – especially at such an established, international brand (that I grew up wearing and admiring). Furthermore, I continue to feel inspired by key members of the adidas and Runtastic teams and believe it is a true privilege to work with such individuals and teams in the months and years to come. Together, we will make exceptional and unexpected things happen. /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Florian Gschwandtner is CEO and Co-Founder of Runtastic.
