It pertains to my business
It pertains to my business

I’m an avid reader of Shop-Eat-Surf because it’s really the only online newsletter that I have found that is not only industry related, but also because it’s not so “guy-centric.” I find that a lot of the information I read on the site pertains to my business (as a swimwear designer) and keeps me up to date on what other companies and other women in the industry in general are doing which is not only inspiring but also helps me gauge the future direction of my business as well.

I feel privileged to read the Executive Edition because I know I am getting insider industry information before it hits the mainstream media channels. And it’s always good to know what my friends are up to in the industry.

Quik Board eliminates execs recent raises

I missed this yesterday when I was in a virtual whiteout while skiing at Mt. Bachelor in Oregon. Kind of hard to check the iPhone for news in those conditions. It's been snowing non-stop here all week - lots of rescues of people stuck in powder up to their chests. All this snow has got to be great for the bookings going on right now for next winter.


Back to the news. In January, Quiksilver said it wanted to cut $20 million in expenses as it works to improve profit margins. The board made one cost cutting move this week. It eliminated the raises it recently gave to top executives, keeping their pay at these fiscal 2007 levels:

Name and Position                               Base Salary

  • Robert B. McKnight, Jr.              $ 950,000

Chief Executive Officer

  • Bernard Mariette,                      $ 800,000

President

  • Charles S. Exon,                       $ 425,000

Executive VP, Secretary and General Counsel

  • Joseph Scirocco,                       $ 550,000

Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

  • David Morgan,                           $ 475,000

Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer
