Since the inception of Executive Edition, I only need 1 stop

As a retailer in the surf industry for the past 21 years, I have had to use multiple sources to stay informed to the news within surf. Since the inception of the Executive Edition of Shop-Eat-Surf.com, I need only one stop. Thanks for providing such a valuable tool to all of us in the industry. Shop-Eat-Surf is a must read for all of our staff at Maui Nix.

Executive Edition is a must have

Before Shop-Eat-Surf, there were two sites I paid for premium content on. One is Surfline, the other is the Wall Street Journal. One is about all things surf, the other, the best business content site in the world. Shop-eat-surf is the intersection of those two worlds. Shop-Eat-Surf provides everything from coverage of events, people, brands and trends. However, beyond the Executive Edition "wall" is more meaty analysis and interpretation of financial statements, business models and brand philosophies; why certain brands and companies are succeeding, where others aren't. The Executive Edition is a must have read if the business of surf and action sports are on your radar screen.

Press Release:

 

Quiksilver Inc. Welcomes Clark Gundlach

 

Clark Gundlach appointed as SVP and General Manager of Winter Sports, Quiksilver Americas.

 

Huntington Beach, California, January 17, 2012 -- Quiksilver, Inc. (NYSE:ZQK) today announced the appointment of Clark Gundlach, a long-time and well-respected snow industry veteran, as the Senior Vice President and General Manager, Winter Sports at Quiksilver, Americas, effective immediately.

 

The hiring aligns with the company’s strategy of aggressively growing the mountain and snow category that began last year with the appointment of Mike “Chief” Nusenow, well-known in the snow community for his achievements in bringing awareness to the sport and lifestyle of snowboarding, as Senior Vice President, Winter Sports.

 

The announcement follows a period of significant improvement in the company’s Americas business. Over the past two years, profits generated by Quiksilver’s Americas region have nearly tripled and the company expects further significant improvement through category expansion and other initiatives.

 

“Clark, Chief, and the rest of the snow team in the Americas, along with athletes like Travis Rice and Torah Bright, are going to take our brands and our business to new places,” stated Rob Colby, President of Quiksilver Americas. “I couldn’t be happier with this crew.”

 

In his new role, Gundlach will oversee the product, sales and marketing of Quiksilver, Roxy and DC brands for the technical snow and outdoor/mountain businesses. Gundlach will report directly to Colby; and Nusenow will report into Gundlach.

 

Quiksilver’s long history in winter sports began at its inception with the Quiksilver logo of a cresting wave and snow-capped mountain representing the company’s heritage in board sports; and includes the award-winning Mervin company, makers of the Gnu and Lib Tech brand, in the company’s portfolio.

 

 

About Quiksilver:

Quiksilver, Inc. (NYSE:ZQK) is the world’s leading outdoor sports lifestyle company, which designs, produces and distributes a diversified mix of branded apparel, footwear, accessories, snowboards and related products. The company’s apparel and footwear brands represent a casual lifestyle for young-minded people that connect with its boardriding culture and heritage.

 

The reputation of Quiksilver’s brands is based on outdoor action sports. The company’s Quiksilver, Roxy, DC, Lib Tech and Hawk brands are synonymous with the heritage and culture of surfing, skateboarding and snowboarding.
