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.

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.

Quiksilver Europe said today that Sébastien Loux, vice president finance and operations, has resigned to pursue other interests. Loux worked for Quiksilver for 15 years.

He will be replaced by Pierre Boccon-Liaudet as Chief Financial Officer and José Cledera as Chief Operations Officer. They will be reporting directly to Pierre Agnes, President of Quiksilver Europe and on a functional level to Joe Scirocco, Group CFO/COO.

Pierre Boccon-Liaudet, 40, will be responsible for all Europe's finance functions, customer service and sales administration. Pierre joined Quiksilver Europe in May 2005 as Finance Director. Prior to joining Quiksilver, Pierre held various financial positions at KPMG and Schlumberger in Europe and Asia.

José Cledera, 46, will have the responsibility for all Europe operations functions and IT. José joined Quiksilver Europe in May 2007 as IT Director. Prior to joining Quiksilver, José held several management positions in IT and manufacturing at Motorola and Freescale in Europe.

A Quiksilver spokesman declined to comment beyond the press release.
