I am a big fan of Tiffany and her team as well as an avid reader of Shop-Eat-Surf. I shop, I eat, I surf -- I should pay.

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.

Quiksilver hosted a cocktail reception Thursday night for retailers who were in town for the U.S. Open, Agenda and Quiksilver’s own market week.

 

While the company’s brands showed at Agenda, Quiksilver also booked appointments with retailers throughout the week at company headquarters in Huntington Beach.

 

I had a brief chat with CEO Bob McKnight at the cocktail party, who told me the company is about to roll out SAP, starting with DC first. Quiksilver’s new building for its campus expansion will be ready sometime in September.

 

And Bob said he is looking forward to the Quiksilver Pro in New York and raising the profile of surfing in the media capital of the world.

 

He is feeling good about business in general, with Quiksilver’s product and marketing better than ever, he said, and its balance sheet cleaned up.

 

Above are some photos from the event.
