Deckers Brands Makes Changes to Executive Suite
UGG and Hoka parent Deckers Brands last week promoted 14-year company veteran Angela Ogbechie to chief supply chain officer where she will become a member of the Deckers Brands executive team and report directly to Dave Powers, CEO and president. Her appointment in the newly created role becomes effective on June 24, the same day that COO David Lafitte will depart Deckers for an opportunity with another company.
The supply chain functions currently reporting to Lafitte will now report to the Chief Supply Chain Officer, with other functions transitioning to the appropriate leaders on Deckers' executive team.
Ogbechie has served in various operational roles at Deckers since 2008, most recently as SVP, Global Operations & Supply Chain Strategy. In her new role, Ogbechie will oversee all activities related to the global supply chain operations and logistics organization.
