Teva Solidifies Management Team with New Global Marketing Director
Goleta, Calif. (January 12, 2009) â€“ TevaÂ® (a division of Deckers Outdoor Corporation NASDAQGS: DECK) is proud to announce the hiring of Joel Heath as Global Marketing Director. Heath is the 4th addition to Teva's Management Team within the last 10 months. Heath joins a team that includes Global Product Director, Juerg Geser (March '08), Domestic Sales Vice President, Jake Brandman (September '08), Product Development Director, Tony Macey (September '08) and Business Manager, Nicole Peters.
In his new role, Heath will report directly to Pete Worley, Teva Brand President. â€œJoel is the final piece of the pieâ€, said Worley. â€œThe addition of Joel represents a huge step in the ongoing evolution of the Teva Brand. I expect great things from this team.â€
Heath was a natural pick for Teva. Most recently, he was President/CEO and Founder of Untraditional Marketing, based in Vail, CO. During his 7 years there, Heath orchestrated all company efforts, including the creation and running of the Teva Mountain Games, where he worked closely with members of Teva's Product and Marketing Teams. Prior to that, Heath worked with the Vail Valley Tourism and Convention Bureau, where he left the organization as Vice President of Visitor Services.
Earning a BS in Business Administration from the University of Redlands, Joel graduated as the number one student in the Business School.
â€œIt is an honor to have the opportunity to come inside a brand I have admired for so long.â€ said Heath. â€œA new frontier for the outdoors is on the horizon and I am looking forward to an epic journey.â€
