Teva Amps Up Product Team With New Product Director
Goleta, Calif. (August 24, 2007) â€“ Teva (a division of Deckers Outdoor Corporation NASDAQ: DECK) is proud to announce the hire of Product Line Manager, Juerg Geser. In his new role at Teva, Juerg will bring new inspiration and energy to the Teva product line.
Juerg began his career in 1993 as an EKIN Manager for Nike Switzerland, conducting product and sales training clinics for retailers. Over the next few years, Juerg held several positions within Nike's International Division, including Footwear Product/Business Manager for Switzerland and Austria, Footwear Merchandising Manager for Switzerland, Austria and Germany, and Key Account Executive for Switzerland.
