The company also announced that Thomas Chambolle, Quiksilver’s EMEA region CFO, will be promoted to CFO of Quiksilver, Inc. effective April 3, 2015.

Thomas Chambolle joined Quiksilver as EMEA region CFO in 2013. Previously, Thomas was a managing partner at Ricol Lasteyrie, a financial advisory consulting firm in France, since 2010.

Pierre Agnes has worked for Quiksilver for 27 years. In November 2014, he was promoted to president of Quiksilver, Inc. He previously served as the global head of apparel for Quiksilver, Roxy, and DC. Since 2005, Pierre served as president of Quiksilver Europe.

In 2010, Greg was named APAC president, following a promotion to CEO of Australasia in 2009. Greg will be based in Huntington Beach, CA.

Bob McKnight, founder and chairman of Quiksilver, Inc., said, “The board has great confidence in Pierre’s ability and skills to lead our company. His primary focus will be on improving operational execution and efficiencies, and identifying growth opportunities, especially in the US wholesale channel.”

“Thomas has done an outstanding job leading our EMEA region finance team. He is well suited to take over the CFO position, and we are confident that he will hit the ground running,” he added.
