Quiksilver, Inc. announced the appointments of Tom Hartge as Global Head of Footwear and Kasey Mazzone as Global Head of Supply Chain. The additions to the team are part of a larger senior management reorganization, which includes Pierre Agnes, President of Quiksilver Europe, assuming the additional role as Global Head of Apparel, and the Company recruiting for a Chief Marketing Officer position.

“We are centralizing key functions and responsibilities across Quiksilver, Roxy and DC in order to strengthen our brands, grow sales and drive operational efficiencies”

“We are centralizing key functions and responsibilities across Quiksilver, Roxy and DC in order to strengthen our brands, grow sales and drive operational efficiencies,” said Andy Mooney, President and Chief Executive Officer of Quiksilver, Inc. “Both Tom and Kasey bring world class expertise to their respective roles, as well as extensive experience with global brands. These appointments, along with Pierre’s new role and the addition of a Chief Marketing Officer, will make our company more competitive and are key elements in our evolution from a regional management structure to a global structure with experienced leaders guiding each key functional area of the company.”

Hartge, 56, is a veteran of the footwear industry. During a 28-year career at Nike, Inc., which spanned 1981 to 2009, Hartge helped lead the company’s highly successful running shoe business. He held a number of senior level positions in product marketing, merchandising, general management, advanced research and design, and corporate and business philanthropy. As Nike’s Global Brand Director, Hartge collaborated with Nike’s Beijing Olympics group and Nike Plus team to synergize the company’s running business. Earlier, he was Creative Director, Advanced Initiatives.

Before that, he was Director, Emerging Markets; Footwear General Manager, Americas Region; and Director Footwear Merchandising, Europe. More recently, he served as an advisor to Patagonia, Inc.’s footwear division. In this role, Hartge acted as liaison between Patagonia Footwear and Wolverine World Wide, the global licensor of Patagonia footwear, to collaborate and align product initiatives, brand stories and business goals.

Mazzone, 52, has more than 20 years of global supply chain experience across multiple product categories and distribution channels. Prior to joining Quiksilver, she was Senior Vice President, Global Sourcing for Lands’ End, where she was responsible for product development, sourcing, technical design, quality and logistics.

Earlier, Mazzone was Senior Vice President, Production & Sourcing for American Eagle Outfitters, where she developed an international vendor base and managed internal product development, and before that held senior management positions in sourcing for Gap, Inc. Between 1991 and 2004, Mazzone held various positions with increasing responsibility at Levi Strauss & Co., ultimately serving as Vice President, Asia and Africa Sourcing Region. In these roles, she managed all sourcing, product development, inventory and supply planning, supplier development, quality assurance and social compliance, and achieved meaningful cost reductions and improved inventory turns while maintaining customer fill expectations.
