I require all our executives to read it

There is no better publication that I am aware of that is so accurate and on top of any news and developments in our industry. I personally recommend it to many people that want to know and understand more about our industry. For the most part, shop-eat-surf.com gets the stories first. As a matter of fact, I require all the executives in our company to read it.

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.

Action sports CEOs and their mothers

In honor of Mother's Day, here are photos of three industry CEOs and their mothers, who obviously did something right by raising such successful offspring. 

I make a point of taking photos of company leaders with their families when I'm at different company events.

I met Sole Technology CEO Pierre André Senizergues' mother, Anne, at the opening party for the action film series of the Newport Beach Film Festival when she asked my husband about his hat. Being from Paris, she thought it resembled a beret. 

Anne and Bob McKnightMothers often attend shareholder meetings to support their sons. They are probably stockholders, too, now that I think about it.

I saw Bob McKnight, with his mother, Anne, at Quiksilver's shareholder meeting this year and asked to take their photo.

I took this photo of Richard Woolcott and his mother, Eloise, at Volcom's shareholder meeting last year.
