Volcom Names CFO

Kari Hamanaka Tuesday, July 5, 2011

David Unter has been promoted from vice president of finance to chief finanical officer at Costa Mesa-based Volcom Inc.

He succeeds Doug Collier, who recently stepped down after 18 years with Volcom, which sells clothes and accessories inspired by surfing, skateboarding and snowboarding.

Volcom recently was acquired by Paris-based luxury house PPR SA in a $608 million deal.

Collier had been with Volcom from its early days as a startup company and through its initial public offering in 2005 and its sale to PPR earlier this year.

Collier’s decision to leave the company is the first major change in Volcom’s executive lineup since PPR’s acquisition of the company was finalized late last month.

Unter joined Volcom in 2005 after serving as director of finance at City of Industry-based mall retailer Hot Topic Inc., which sells clothes and accessories inspired by music and pop culture.

Unter has also worked at New York-based accounting firm Deloitte LLP.
