Wirth is currently Managing Director of Ralph Lauren Germany and previously held positions at Burberry and René Lezard.

The Bogner group last year explored the sale of the company for 250 million euros, nearly the annual turnover of the brand. Despite it having several interested suitors, including Permira, Mercedes Benz and Bridgespoint, Bogner found the search led by Goldman Sachs unsatisfactory, and announced in June it would not pursue the sale.
