Troy joined Zumiez in 2008. The functional teams in North America will transition to reporting to Troy over a 12-month period.

The new President International is Adam Ellis, who will have responsibility for the sales and operational profitability Zumiez's operations outside of North America, including Blue Tomato in Europe and Fast Times in Australia. Adam recently moved to Europe, where he has also been the Managing Director of Blue Tomato since Feb. 2017.

Adam’s most recent role was SVP of Global Retail and Business Development. He joined Zumiez in 2005 and held various jobs at the company, mostly in the real estate department.

Troy and Adam will continue to report to Rick Brooks, who will remain responsible for Zumiez’s success in its overall global business operations and global strategies, the company said in the filing.
