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.

Press Release:

 

Burton Snowboards Grows its Presence in Korea with LG Fashion Partnership

 

BURLINGTON, VT (March 24, 2011) Burton Snowboards is pleased to announce that LG Fashion, Korea’s leading fashion company, will officially become Burton’s new distributor in Korea. In addition, the two companies have signed a licensing agreement that allows LG Fashion to design and distribute lifestyle streetwear in Korea under the Burton brand name.

 

To celebrate the new partnership, LG Fashion invited Burton Snowboards’ Co-Owner Donna Carpenter to a ceremony in Seoul this week where executives from the two companies officially signed the agreement.

 

“It is a true honor for me to be in Korea to personally sign our new partnership agreement with LG Fashion,” said Donna.

 

“With dozens of winter resorts and a snowy climate, Korea is a very important market for us, and we’ve always wanted to enhance Burton’s presence here. Now that we have such a reputable and established partner as LG Fashion, we can take Burton to a whole new level in the Korean marketplace.”

 

Once the partnership goes into effect, LG Fashion will distribute all Burton, RED, anon, Gravis and Analog products in Korea and will also service all Burton authorized dealers in the region.

 

In addition, LG Fashion will collaborate with Burton on creating a new, Burton-branded apparel and accessories line exclusively for the Korean market. LG Fashion will also work with Burton to establish new retail partners and flagship stores in Korea.

 

The partnership between Burton Snowboards and LG Fashion officially takes effect on April 1, 2011.
