Quiksilver Makes Sales Team Changes

Kari Hamanaka Thursday, November 29, 2012

Huntington Beach-based action sports apparel maker and retailer Quiksilver Inc. reportedly has revamped its executive sales team.

The company cut its vice president of sales slot in the young men’s division, most recently occupied by Dave Rosenberger, and Quiksilver General Manager Steve Wilson is expected to step down next month, according to trade publication Transworld Business.

Also, John Mills, senior vice president of sales, is expected to add more operational duties. And Taylor Whisenand, senior vice president of marketing operations, now will head up sales for the company’s Americas division.

Whisenand rejoined the company in April, when Quiksilver announced the creation of two senior marketing vice president positions. Those moves included the appointment of Ryan Scanlon as senior vice president of marketing for Quiksilver Americas.

Company officials weren’t immediately available for comment on the most recent executive changes.
