Since the inception of Executive Edition, I only need 1 stop

As a retailer in the surf industry for the past 21 years, I have had to use multiple sources to stay informed to the news within surf. Since the inception of the Executive Edition of Shop-Eat-Surf.com, I need only one stop. Thanks for providing such a valuable tool to all of us in the industry. Shop-Eat-Surf is a must read for all of our staff at Maui Nix.

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.

Orange 21 CFO resigns

Orange 21, the parent company of Spy Optics, said today that CFO Jerry Collazo has resigned to "pursue other opportunities."

CEO A. Stone Douglass will now take on CFO duties as well, and the company has no immediate plans to replace Collazo, according to a filing with the SEC.

The board of directors also named fellow board member Seth Harmot as chairman, replacing Douglass.

Orange 21 has experienced some turmoil recently after a dispute with No Fear and Mark Simo. No Fear is a large holder of Orange 21 stock, according to Orange 21's annual report. Orange 21 claimed No Fear owed the company nearly $1 million for product it had shipped to No Fear stores.

Mark Simo of No Fear claimed Orange 21 owed him $600,000 in compensation for his two-year tenure as CEO of Orange 21, which ended in 2008.

The two sides eventually settled their differences. To settle the claims, Simo's No Fear agreed to pay Orange 21 subsidiary Spy Optics's U.S. and Italian companies a total of $736,350 in cash and return credits. And Orange 21 agreed to give No Fear $600,000 in credits toward the purchase of future Spy products by No Fear.
