Boardriders was an Oaktree Capital company with iconic brands including Quiksilver, Billabong, Roxy, Element, RVCA, DC Shoes, and several other brands. As the global CIO and a member of the ELT, I was responsible for all aspects of IT that included IT teams in US, France, Australia, and Japan with channel responsibility for wholesale, retail, and eCommerce. As Boardriders was a global company, I managed and was responsible for the management of global systems including SAP, PLM, PIM, CEGID POS, global infrastructure, and security. I provided due diligence for the ultimate acquisition of Boardriders by Authentic Brands Group in September 2023.
