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.

Mike Carter leaves Skullcandy

Mike Carter, the former Vice President of Global Marketing at Skullcandy, has left the company, Mike told me today.

 

His last day was Friday.

 

Mike said he is very proud of what he and his team accomplished in his 2.5 years there. His goal when he joined was to help the brand get the recognition it deserved in the boardsports arena. He also helped establish Skullcandy’s presence on the West Coast.

 

“Every goal we hit,” he said.

 

He helped set up the office in San Clemente, and said he really valued the experience of going through the IPO.

 

I have a message into CEO Jeremy Andrus to get his comment on the news.

 

Mike said he remains a major shareholder in Skullcandy, whose corporate headquarters are in Park City, Utah, and is a big believer in the brand and the company.

 

Mike said he has the entrepreneurial bug, however, and is moving on to a new endeavor. He can’t yet say what that next thing is, but Shop-eat-surf will report the details when he is ready.

 

Before joining Skullcandy, Mike was a partner in the Electric Visual sunglass brand, which was bought by Volcom and is now owned by French company PPR.
