Quiksilver appoints new chief executive

Lifestyle clothing brand Quiksilver has promoted Pierre Agnes to the position of chief executive.

Previously president of Quiksilver, Agnes has succeeded Andy Mooney who has now left the business. 

Bob McKnight, founder and chairman of Quiksilver, said: “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. This work provides the foundation for the next phase of Quiksilver’s progress.”

He added: “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.”

Agnes has worked for Quiksilver for 27 years and was appointed as president in 2014. His previous roles include global head of apparel for Quiksilver, Roxy and DC as well as president of Quiksilver Europe.

Meanwhile, Quiksilver APAC region president Greg Healy will replace Agnes as president. 

The company has also announced that Thomas Chambolle, Quiksilver’s EMEA region chief financial officer, will be promoted to chief financial officer of Quiksilver. He will succeed Richard Shields who has resigned to pursue other opportunities although he will continue to serve as a consultant.

McKnight said: “We appreciate Richard's contributions, including pushing our cost reduction program, refinancing of the company’s senior notes and reducing inventory levels. I thank him for agreeing to assist Thomas during this transition.

“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.”
