Shoe company Deckers Outdoor has taken on Peter Worley as Teva brand president.

Worley, who will be responsible for all aspects of the Teva brand, replaces Carlo Lingiardi, who was injured in a cycling accident in October.
Worley most recently served as vice president of US Sales with athletic shoe company K-Swiss.

Deckers president and chief executive Angel Martinez said: "Peter's expertise in sales and marketing, strategic planning, design and development, product merchandising, and licensing will greatly support Teva's mission to become the premier outdoor performance brand in the marketplace."
