Quiksilver has announced that CEO Andy Mooney has resigned and will be replaced by Pierre Agnes, who has been with the company for 27 years. Richard Shields, the company's CFO, has also left, while APAC Region President Greg Healy has been promoted to president and Bob McKnight has been named chairman. All changes became effective March 27.
Agnes was promoted to president of the company in November of last year, having previously served as global head of apparel for the Quiksilver, Roxy and DC brands. Since 2005 he has also been president of Quiksilver Europe.
Healy is a certified public accountant and joined the company's finance team in 1998. Four years later he took on the CFO and COO roles for the APAC region, before being named CEO of "Australaisia" in 2009 and APAC president in 2010.
Thomas Chambolle, EMEA region CFO, will succeed Shields, effective April 3. Shields will remain as a consultant to Chambolle.
"On behalf of the board, I want to thank Andy Mooney for his leadership in driving the organizational changes that were essential to restoring our product design leadership and globalizing many of our key functions," McKnight, founder and chairman of the company, said in a statement. "This work provides the foundation for the next phase of Quiksilver's progress." Press release
