Mark Miller is now longer with K-Swiss, Mark told me this week.
His last day was Friday.
At K-Swiss, Mark was the President of a new Orange County/Youth Division. He was also President of MMA brand FORM Athletics, which he founded and sold to K-Swiss.
Mark joined K-Swiss in July 2010.
Previously, Mark served as the SVP and General Manger of DC Shoes in the Americas.
K-Swiss Executive Vice President David Nichols told me this morning that most of the Orange County team has been consolidated into K-Swiss’ Westlake Office. Kelly Magrath, also formerly of DC Shoes, will now lead the Youth Division, Nichols said.
FORM will continue and remains a long-term strategic project for K-Swiss, Nichols said.
