It's well balanced information that is useful on a daily basis. I'm very satisfied with the Executive Edition. I start each day with SES and a big cup of coffee!

There is no better publication that I am aware of that is so accurate and on top of any news and developments in our industry. I personally recommend it to many people that want to know and understand more about our industry. For the most part, shop-eat-surf.com gets the stories first. As a matter of fact, I require all the executives in our company to read it.

Quiksilver hosts party for retailers

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.
