By the end of August, Richard Cotter will step down as president of the Berghaus brand, leaving the Pentland group to take up another career opportunity. He will become chief executive of the Snow + Rock Group, which describes itself as Britain’s largest specialty retailer for snow sports apparel and equipment. Snow + Rock says that it currently runs an online store and 21 brick-and-mortar shops around the United Kingdom. Cotter joined Pentland in 2003, first as a managing director of the Brasher brand of footwear and then, three years later, as Berghaus’ president. Richard Cotter has been the driving force behind Berghaus’ efforts to become global, notably by setting up new operations in the Far East.
