Heelys Inc names new President & CEO

27
May '08
The Board of Directors of Heelys Inc announces that Senior Vice President of Marketing Don Carroll, has been named President and Chief Executive Officer, effective May 20.

As President and CEO, Carroll will have responsibility for executing Heelys' strategic brand initiative and long-term growth objectives, as well as the company's day-to-day operations.

Ralph T. Parks, who has served as interim CEO since January 29, 2008, will remain a member of Heelys' board of directors. “Don is both a leader and team builder and Heelys will benefit immensely from his increased level of responsibilities,” said Mr. Parks.

Carroll joined Heelys on January 2, 2008 as senior vice president of marketing, a newly created position for the company. Since then, he has served as a member of the company's executive team and provided leadership over the company's strategy development, brand management, marketing, intellectual property portfolio and product development. His synergistic leadership style and commitment to product innovation make him a natural choice for the position.

“Don is an exceptionally gifted and collaborative leader who possesses a unique combination of strategic thinking, branding and operational expertise. In his short tenure with Heelys, he has demonstrated leadership in the development and implementation of the company's long-term business plan,” said Gary L. Martin, Chairman of Heelys' board of directors. “We anticipate a very smooth transition and are confident that Don has the strategic vision to take Heelys to the next level.”
