After twelve years, Kathmandu CEO Reuben Casey has resigned from his position.

“It’s been a privilege being with Kathmandu for over 12 years and I thank all the team at Kathmandu and KMD brands,” says Casey.

“With such a passionate team culture, brand strength, desirable product offer and a blossoming international business, I have no doubt that Kathmandu will go from strength to strength.”
