Ellis, the company’s Presiding Director. “Bob has made countless contributions to our success, and he has attracted and inspired the company’s world class athletes, creative and dedicated employees and highly talented management team. Bob's passion for and commitment to this business has been, and will continue to be, an integral part of Quiksilver’s success.”

He is an experienced senior executive with a proven background building consumer brands, developing worldwide marketing strategies and driving global growth. Andy is ideally suited to lead Quiksilver into its next phase of growth and profitability.”

For the last year, I have worked closely with the Board and a leading executive search firm to identify the best possible candidate to succeed me as President and CEO, and I know Andy is the right choice. Working together, Andy and I will ensure that this transition is seamless for all of our stakeholders and that the company will continue to execute on its strategic priorities to deliver long-term shareholder value.”

I am enthusiastic and energized about the opportunities ahead, and look forward to working with the Board, management team and our employees around the world to continue strengthening our brands, increasing global sales and driving operational efficiencies to fully realize Bob’s vision for Quiksilver.”
