Skullcandy Names Founder And Director Rick Alden Interim Chief Executive Officer

Mr. Alden, who founded Skullcandy in 2003, added, "I am honored to play this role in the next chapter at Skullcandy. This company has been my life since founding it and I'm excited to come back in as we enter our second decade. I could not be more fired up to jump back in and get my hands dirty, especially around product development and geographic expansion. Jeremy has helped create a world-class operation and his leadership has resulted in numerous awards and recognition from our industry and customers for excellence in supply chain, sourcing, manufacturing, product development and logistics. With an excellent team of skull-bleeding fanatics and this strong operational foundation, Skullcandy and Astro, our gaming brand that has become a highlight of the business, have an exciting future."

Mr. Andrus said, "I am incredibly proud of what Skullcandy has achieved. It was very exciting to join the company when it was little more than an idea and a dream, and to be part of growing it into one of the world's most popular consumer audio brands. I wish the team all the best as they move Skullcandy forward." 

Rick Alden founded Skullcandy in January 2003 and until March 2011 served as Chief Executive Officer. He was named Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year in 2007, selected as the Utah CEO of the Year in 2008, and was featured as Entrepreneur of the Year by Entrepreneur Magazine in 2009. Prior to founding Skullcandy, in 1995 Rick co-founded Device Manufacturing, a snowboard boot and binding company, which was acquired by the Atomic Ski Company in 1999. In 1986, Rick co-founded National Snowboard Incorporated, a snowboard events and marketing company, which was acquired by the American Ski Association in 1991. Rick also remains active in various entrepreneurial endeavors. He is the creator, co-founder and director of Stance, a high-growth action sports-inspired hosiery company, and a director of Celtek, an action sports apparel company. He holds a B.S. from the University of Colorado.
