As part of that announcement, as a condition precedent to the significant investment by the Altamont Consortium, the Board of Billabong announced that it intended to appoint Scott Olivet as Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of Billabong. It was also announced that Launa Inman would step down from her role as Chief Executive Officer and as a director of the Company.
The Company announces that consistent with the 16 July announcement, Launa Inman stepped down as Chief Executive Officer and as a director of Billabong effective at the close of business on Friday, 2 August.
Discussions with Scott Olivet regarding his appointment as CEO are continuing but have not been finalised as we await the outcome of the Takeovers Panel’s deliberations. This may take a week or more. In the interim Scott will act as a consultant and Peter Myers will be acting CEO.
Billabong also announces that Paul Naude has resigned from his positions as a director and employee of the company to pursue other opportunities. Paul most recently served as President Americas after a 15 year career with the Company.
