Retail professional Hans-Kurt Bejer has acquired fashion company Lindon with the backing of partners including investment company Dansk Generationsskifte and a number of private investors.

Bejer has now been made managing director of the company, succeeding Torben Klausen, who quit the company earlier this year.

Bejer most recently served as sales director at sportswear producer Hummel.

1965-established Lindon recently underwent a shake-up that saw it move its focus to apparel design and trade rather than manufacturing.

Lindon operates in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Germany, Switzerland, The Netherlands and Finland
