Current Mervin Mfg. Sales Manager, Greg Hughes, has been appointed Vice President of Sales. He will oversee worldwide sales of all Mervin products including Gnu Snowboards, Boots, Bindings and Accessories, Lib Tech Snowboards, Bent Metal Binders, Roxy Snowboards and Skateboards and Lib Tech Skateboards. Greg has been with the company since November of 2002. Before that time, he served as sales manager for Morrow Snowboards and the 11 previous years as a snowboard industry sales rep. “I’m happy about my new position at Mervin. It’s been a fun place to work and it’s great to be in an office with the noise of snowboards being built in the background. It kind of gives me a different perspective on what we are doing here”, says Hughes. “We have a great team of people in our sales department and that helps make my job a lot easier”.
Bill Bussiere, CFO of Quiksilver, Americas and General Manager of Mervin, commented, “Though Greg knows nothing of ice hockey and is, instead a baseball fan, he has demonstrated an uncanny ability to lead our sales strategy and to keep Danny Kass away from his daughter”. Look for Greg on the road visiting regional trade shows this winter and shop tours next fall.
