Deckers Brands promoted its omnichannel president Dave Powers to president of Deckers Brands. Angel Martinez, who has been president of Deckers Brands since 2005, will remain chief executive office and chair of the board of directors.
Deckers Brands’ portfolio includes Ugg, Teva, Sanuk, Ahnu, Mozo, Tsubo and Hoka One One. Sold in more than 50 countries, it currently has 138 company-owned and operated stores, as well as its own online stores.
In his new role, Powers will lead the omnichannel organization, as well as each of the brand teams. Powers joined the company in 2012 as president of direct to consumer and held several positions including leading Deckers’ international wholesale and distributor business. Prior to Deckers, Powers was the vice president of global direct to consumer and licensed retail at Converse. He also held senior leadership roles at Timberland and Gap.
“Dave has been instrumental in the growth and transformation of our business over the past few years,” Martinez said. “His work developing our omnichannel model has dramatically enhanced how consumers engage with our brands across retail, e-commerce and wholesale.”
