Caroline joins us as an Account Executive, responsible primarily for building our online Professional Services Directory.

“We're excited to add a sales professional of Caroline's caliber to the Shop-eat-surf sales team,” said Shop-eat-surf President Andrew Horan.
“Caroline has a long and impressive sales background which includes retail, repping and sales management, so she has a great understanding of the business of our industry,” he said.
Caroline has worked for Burton, DC, RVCA, Ride and Globe/Gallaz and has a strong pedigree in surf/skate/snow, coming from the snowy mountains of Utah, where she started to skate and snowboard in 1992. Caroline is now based in Southern California.
"Shop-eat-surf has been my go-to resource for years, when I need to know what's happening in this exciting industry. I love that it always gets the story straight and is so consistent in delivering great news and insights on every side of the business," Caroline said.
"While I've been home with my baby the last few years, I've relied on Shop-eat-surf to keep me plugged in. And now I'm beyond delighted to be working with Tiffany, Andrew and the rest of the team."
Caroline is primarily responsible for continuing to build our Professional Services Directory.
