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'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!

Former DC president joins Fox board

By Tiffany Montgomery
January 07, 2010 7:21 AM

Nick Adcock, the former global president of DC Shoes who drove that brand’s rapid growth over the past several years, is joining the board of Fox Head Inc.

Fox’s roots are in motocross but it now reaches across several action sports and has become one of the largest privately held action sports companies with revenues above $200 million.

Nick, who now lives in Ibiza, Spain, will travel to California one week a month to help Fox develop strategic plans for the future, in addition to helping Fox grow and refine its footwear line and other projects.

I talked to Nick and Fox CEO Pete Fox about the new arrangement and why they think it’s a good fit. I also talked to Nick about what he learned about the changing business landscape from his world travels. I talked to Pete about where he wants to take Fox, how the company performed in 2009 and what it has planned for 2010. These stories are available to our Executive Edition readers.
