It's well balanced information that is useful on a daily basis. I'm very satisfied with the Executive Edition. I start each day with SES and a big cup of coffee!

Executive Edition is a must have
Executive Edition is a must have

Before Shop-Eat-Surf, there were two sites I paid for premium content on. One is Surfline, the other is the Wall Street Journal. One is about all things surf, the other, the best business content site in the world. Shop-eat-surf is the intersection of those two worlds. Shop-Eat-Surf provides everything from coverage of events, people, brands and trends. However, beyond the Executive Edition "wall" is more meaty analysis and interpretation of financial statements, business models and brand philosophies; why certain brands and companies are succeeding, where others aren't. The Executive Edition is a must have read if the business of surf and action sports are on your radar screen.

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
