Readers Say
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.

Report from Volcom Annual Meeting

By Tiffany Montgomery
May 06, 2011 6:31 AM

Yesterday I stopped by the Volcom shareholder meeting, something I do every year, though this time around things were different in light of the news this week that French luxury company PPR is in the process of acquiring the company.

 

It was a smaller crowd in attendance, though top executives like President Jason Steris, EVP of Sales Tom Ruiz and several others were still there, as was CEO Richard Woolcott’s mom, Eloise, and Duke Edukas and Paul Burnett of Surfside.

 

The official part of the meeting was short – there was no review of strategy and plans. The company is careful about what it is saying publicly because of the pending acquisition.

 

Richard did thank those in attendance for supporting Volcom over the last six years as it became and then operated as a public company.

 

He also said Volcom is going to “Keep the spirit alive, keep charging and we’re excited for the future.”
