Tobias Rittinghaus

Esprit Europe GmbH, Retail Operations Project Manager EU


Tobias Rittinghaus started his professional life as a merchant in the sports & fashion area in the retail sector. Since then he has held different positions and roles from department manager, store manager, trainer to project management and coordination.
After 18 years of working at the POS in different departments and functions (SPORTDIREKT and Esprit Retail B.V.), where he always wanted to be close to the direct customer front, he has now logically moved into the operational retail business as a project manager.
The practical and hands-on experience in many retail processes, the challenges in stationary retail, the cohesion in a network and the abundance of countless events and challenges lead him to follow his passion.
Retail is commerce and commerce wakes up every day with new challenges, which are filled with expectations from the internal side as well as from the end customer. Closing this bridge between both sides with new technologies, ideas and measures gives him a lot of joy and accompanies him since then.
