“With his extensive experience, knowledge and passion for the industry, we are certain that he will successfully lead Hurley during its next phase of growth,” Roger Wyett said in a statement. “He joins an experienced management team and will work with Bob Hurley, the company’s founder to advance this iconic brand.”

At 52, Michael Egeck indeed brings the experience he had gained at VF as President of the branch of contemporary brands and CEO of Seven for All Mankind. Prior to that, still at VF, the director served as president of the Outdoor and Action Sports division and CEO of The North Face

This experience in the world of sport is likely to enable him to manage Hurley for a long time to come. The former CEO of Dockers had served a few months as the head of Hurley before finally taking charge of Converse.
