"A few years ago we had less than 10 people focused on product, innovation, research & development and quality. Today over a third of our workforce is dedicated to these critical areas. Our increased commitment to the consumer has resulted in some ground breaking new technologies and the issuance of over 80 global patents," continued Mr. Darling. "The addition of Jeff along with Tom's new role creates a world class product development platform that immediately amplifies our vision and capabilities. Both are tremendous leaders who have the experience and skillset to elevate our teams and benefit our loyal fans and consumers. We take being the people's choice in headphones very seriously and we'll only continue to improve our product offering in the months and years ahead."About Skullcandy, Inc.
