Hugh and Ruth Bradley-Stager - Owner/Directors
Ruth is Swiss and was apprenticed in sales and marketing with the famous Swiss shoemakers Bally. Ruth's passion has always been the outdoors - skiing, climbing and trekking - and her lifestyle at her alpine home in Murren Switzerland was the catalyst for the development of Stager Sport with her selection of Meindl footwear, the worlds leading technical bootmakers.
Hugh & Ruth are passionate about the outdoors and any spare time is usually spent up a mountain, by a river or a lake with a rod, or exercising their English Springer spaniels that they have been breeding for nearly 30 years as working gundogs.
