Skullcandy has added some well-known industry names to its board of directors as it prepares to go public.

Former Volcom CFO Doug Collier, who retired from Volcom in June just after PPR’s acquisition of Volcom closed, joined the board this month. He worked at Volcom from 1994 to 2011 during the company’s rapid growth and public company phases.

 

Skullcandy also recruited heavy hitter D. Scott Olivet to its board in June.

 

Olivet, formerly the CEO of Oakley who is still spoken of very highly there, is the executive chairman of RED Digital Cinema (Oakley founder Jim Jannard’s company), chief executive officer of Renegade Brands since July 2009 and the non-executive chairman of Collective Brands since June 2011.

 

Collective Brands owns Payless stores and brands such as Sperry Top-Sider, Saucony, Stride Rite and Keds.

Before joining Oakley, Olivet served as Vice President, NIKE Subsidiaries and New Business Development; Senior Vice President of Real Estate, Store Design, and Construction with Gap; and as a partner with Bain & Company.

 

The Wall Street Journal IPO calendar lists July 19 as the pricing date for Skullcandy's IPO and says the stock is expected to be priced between $17 and $19.

 

Other IPO websites have speculated Skullcandy's stock market debut is imminent.
