Bullitt, which has seen rapid growth since its formation in 2009, is delighted to announce that Oliver Schulte, most recently Vice President for Commercial Operations in EMEA for HTC, has joined its fast growing challenger business.

Prior to his most recent role at HTC, Schulte was the Commercial Director for Europe and before that the Finance Director for Europe. He was one of the original leadership team credited with turning the Company into a dominant global brand. His focus was ensuring the commercial operations of the company were performing to the highest possible level. Before working with the mobile phone manufacturer, he was a Commercial Manager with Siemens.

Oliver Schulte said, "Bullitt is an innovative, dynamic business, working with a number of established global brands to create new products for the consumer electronics market. I am really excited to be joining Bullitt at such an exciting time, and look forward to being part of the team that drives Bullitt's next phase of growth."
