Fox Head: Paul Harrington named CEO
Last December, Fox Head joined the Action Sports brand company established by the investment firm Altamont Capital (Dakine, Mervin,...). The firm has named Paul Harrington the motocross, cycling and winter sports brand specialist ’s new CEO.
Harrington succeeds Scott Olivet, who served as acting CEO in the interim and who will remain chairman of the board of directors. He is very familiar not only with the world of sports, but also with the operation of Altamont Capital.
From 2003 to 2004, Harrington served as chief operating officer of the group Levi Strauss & Co. He then joined Reebok first as COO from 2004 to 2006 and then as CEO until 2008. From 2008 to 2013, he served as CEO of the US company Easton-Bell Sports (Easton, Bell, Giro, Riddell and Blackburn).
For a year and a half, Harrington has worked as an operational partner with Altamont Capital and has served on the board of directors of Dakine and Mervin.
In Europe, the Barcelona-based organization has been overseen by Matthieu Bazil for the last three years. The team was reinforced in October by Scott Lewis, who has worked for four years on his premium brand Beggar Man Thief. He is the former president of Globe and has spent nearly 10 years in leadership positions at Oakley at the Australian and European levels between 1999 and 2008.
