Mr. McKnight to improve Quiksilver operating results
Feb '08
Quiksilver Inc announced that Robert McKnight has, effective immediately, resumed his role as President of Quiksilver, Inc. and remains both Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer. Mr. McKnight will again direct the Company's strategic and operational initiatives as it focuses on its Quiksilver, Roxy and DC core apparel and footwear brands, seeks to improve its operating results and implements strategic initiatives for the Rossignol group.

The Company also announced that Bernard Mariette has resigned from his position as President and as a Director of the Company in order to pursue other interests, which may include attempting to acquire the Rossignol group. As previously announced, J.P. Morgan is conducting a process on behalf of the Company to reduce its exposure to the winter sports equipment business, including a possible sale.

Robert B. McKnight, Jr., Chairman of the Board, President, and Chief Executive Officer of Quiksilver, Inc., commented, “Bernard Mariette has, for fifteen years, been invaluable to the growth and success of this company. He took Quiksilver Europe from its development stage in 1994 and grew it to a €250 million business by 2001 when he became President of the entire company.

Since 2001 Quiksilver has almost quadrupled in size and, under Bernard's leadership, has established an infrastructure to globalize Quiksilver's historically regional businesses and cemented its position as a leading global lifestyle company. Bernard will be truly missed and we wish him the best in the many accomplishments that lie ahead for him.”
