“I am excited to join the Deckers board of directors. I have long admired its portfolio of iconic brands that blend fashion and performance innovation to drive consumer connections,” Luis said in a press release. 
I look forward to supporting the management team in the execution of global strategies that build upon the success they have driven over the past few years."
“On behalf of our management team and the board, I would like to thank Jim for his service to Deckers Brands over the past eight plus years,” Mike Devine, chairman of the board at Deckers, said. 
We are grateful for his contributions to our organisation and wish him the best of luck in all of his future endeavours.”
