“It has been a long, sweet ride at (La Jolla Group) LJG,” he said. “I appreciate the change in direction that the board of directors is implementing. I wish them a mountain of success. I can’t say enough great things about the amazing family that we built at LJG. I would like to thank them all deeply for supporting me for the seven years I was CEO. It was a very special place to build a career.”

 

The La Jolla Group is the licensee for the O’Neill, Rusty, Metal Mulisha, and The Berrics, and has an operating agreement with skate company DNA Distribution.
