Being an Executive Edition member allows me to not miss a beat when it comes to the Industry business news. Definitely keeps me in the loop plus goes great with my morning joe.

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.

Senior Quik exec takes new job

Quiksilver Senior Vice President of Marketing Greg Perlot is leaving the company for a new job opportunity.

 

Greg came from a more formal marketing background and added some structure and practices to the company’s marketing departments while still respecting brand individuality, said Bruce Thomas, Quiksilver VP of Investor Relations.

 

Thomas described the parting as amicable and said Quiksilver appreciated his efforts and wishes Greg the best of luck in his new job.

 

Greg PerlotGreg didn’t want to go into details about his new position, which he starts March 1, but said it’s in the consumer electronics category.

 

“It’s all a good transition, (the job) is just something new I wanted to pursue, a new challenge to try,” he said via email. “My time at Quiksilver has been great, it’s tough to leave.

 

“It started over seven years ago when DC and Quiksilver were clients of my creative agency (72andSunny), and my 3+ years in marketing leadership here has been a blast. The transformation that Bob and Pin (Craig Stevenson) have led these past couple years has really been a privilege to be a part of.

 

“The direction and talent have never been better and I’ll stay close to all my friends here as I enjoy watching Quiksilver, DC and Roxy kick ass.”

 

I asked Bruce if Greg’s position will be filled. He said the company is working on Greg’s transition from Quiksilver and is not ready to discuss any next steps for the overall marketing group at this point.
