Christoph Bründl

Visionary and magic moments manager

Christoph Bründl is the company's magic moments manager. His extraordinarily passionate view of the world and appreciation of people and, above all, employees, is the basis of Bründl Sports' success. So what does he do?

  • The vision for Bründl Sports. He is always a step ahead in his thinking. Even when the here and now is going perfectly, it is never enough. He has the ability to look beyond the horizon, trust his intuition and always actively proceed with great courage - always striving for perfection regardless of any headshaking doubters.
  • The company culture . This is shaped by the Bründl values of happiness, collective responsibility, discipline, consistency and sustainability. Noticeable in all our operations and activities and our guidelines for interacting with each other.
  • Being crazy. Most people thought him crazy when he hired one of the best architects in the world to build the flagship store in Kaprun in 2008, and this will happen again when he expands the building in 2020. But that this attitude is absolutely the right one is demonstrated in the success and continual growth of the Bründl Sports brand.
  • And there's something else which makes him stand out: his goal. "Surround yourself with the best and those who think differently". And that's what he does. Such people are the essence, the essential factor which makes this company so lively and successful.

It's time to recognise our busy bees in the background. They are an integral part of our Bründl system. They are not as visible as our shop teams but without them and their qualities and values, the business would not run so smoothly.

People in our shops

Passionate, extraordinary and always on a mission to give brilliant advice to our customers. Contact with people makes a visit to our shops really special and leaves everyone with a magic moment.
