Reef’s new partners include Unify Brand Partnerships, Ltc. In the United Kingdom and Ireland, which already works with brands such as Teva, Hoka One One and Under Armour Golf.
 
Elsewhere, Brandfusion Holland, BV, Reef’s new distribution partner in Benelux, also has existing agreements with Calvin Klein, Juicy Couture and Scholl, while Quality Brands GmbH, who will now be taking care of the brand’s distribution in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and France, has a distribution portfolio including Tretorn, Fantasy Sandals and G.H. Bass & Co.

The string of agreements will also see Reef products distributed by A. Georgoudas OE in Greece, and Audes Group S.R.L. in Italy, as well as Albion 1879 SL in Spain and Portugal, and I.A. IL Ltd. in Israel.
 
“Reef is thrilled to partner with each of these premium footwear and apparel distributors as our partners in the EMEA market,” commented Reef brand president Mike Jensen in a release. “We are confident that each of these business partners will help continue to drive deep consumer connections and high-quality growth for the Reef brand in the future.”
 
Founded in 1984, Reef was sold by VF Corp to The Rockport Group of Newton, Massachusetts for an undisclosed sum in October 2018.
 
In April 2019 Rockport announced that it was transitioning Reef’s operations in Canada to a distributor model through a partnership with Toronto’s Trend Marketing.
