Strategic Priorities

The Fastest Sports Brand in the World needs a suitable game plan. Over the past years, we’ve executed a turnaround strategy with five defined priorities.

1. Brand Heat

The strength of PUMA’s brand? We draw from our unique heritage in sports and our high credibility in the latest lifestyle trends. To stay on this track, we strengthen our position as a sports brand through partnerships with some of the most elite athletes, such as sprint legend Usain Bolt and star striker Antoine Griezmann. To connect with young trend-setting audiences, we have also developed a unique way of working with cultural and fashion icons like Cara Delevingne and Selena Gomez.

2. Product

PUMA can look back on an extraordinary history full of innovations, designs and products. Our influence can be felt in the sports and sports lifestyle industries till this day. And we’re determined to keep it that way. If you ask us, innovation is at the heart of product design. Naturally, we constantly sharpen our design principles: With products like the CREEPER and the FIERCE, we have introduced some of the industry’s most eye-catching, but also commercial styles.

3. Women’s

Women are a priority for PUMA. We acknowledge women not only as trendsetters in taking inspiration from athletic wear for their everyday style, but they’re increasingly participating in athletic activities worldwide. Building on PUMA’s fashion credibility and sports authenticity, as well as a profound understanding of the modern female athletic consumer, we have positioned our offer for women “where the gym meets the runway”.

4. Distribution

PUMA has continuously improved the quality of its distribution. At the same time, we’ve expanded our presence in key sports performance and sportstyle accounts around the world. We remain dedicated to strengthening our relationships with key retailers by being a reliable partner for them, and by maximizing PUMA’s contribution to their business. It is a clear objective for PUMA that retail partners make money with our products. 

5. Organization

PUMA continues to make progress in key areas, which includes further enhancements of PUMA’s International Trading Organization. This manages global order and invoice flows centrally, the roll-out of a new product development system, further standardization of ERP systems, and improvements to the overall IT infrastructure.
