The Board

Experience: Yes.

It’s important to see different sides of every scenario. That’s why we put together a board with experience in industries beyond footwear and apparel. It’s those experiences, those different perspectives, that help us envision our future.

Highlight thus far has been getting to know the incredible people of Deckers. I had the opportunity to recently attend global sales meetings for the UGG, Teva and Ahnu brands and left incredibly impressed. Led by Angel, the team has developed a formidable strategic vision and is steadfastly committed to developing both its people and portfolio of brands in a quality way. While each has its own distinct culture, all brands have integrated seamlessly into the Deckers family and share much in common – a high level of engagement and energy (these people LOVE what they do), humility, a strong sense of empowerment, and an uncompromising commitment to each other and doing the right thing over the long haul.
