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.

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.
