A new leadership team will guide the company's growth across the globe.

This team will lead the integration of two great companies, creating the world's leading action sports company. I am particularly excited to announce the elevations of Greg Healy and Shannan North, who bring significant industry experience and will be instrumental in leading our global growth with their new Board responsibilities," Tanner concluded.
