US: End Footwear appoints Price as CFO
Outdoor shoe brand End Footwear has added Vince Price as its CFO and opened a new design centre.
Price has more than 20 years in finance leadership having spent 15 years working for Intel Corporation.
Meanwhile, Barry Schrimsher, a long time outdoor and sporting goods industry leader, has joined the End advisory board. He was a founding member of the Mountain Hardwear team in 1993, which was acquired by Columbia Sportswear in 2003. After the acquisition, Schrimsher joined Columbia Sportswear as regional sales manager and more recently was an early member of the Crocs Footwear team.
Andrew Estey, CEO and creative director for End, said: "As we fast approach the delivery of our first season product to the retail channel, the addition of Vince and Barry, along with the opening of our new design center, further strengthens our team and our commitment to building a sustainable brand."
End has opened its new design centre in Portland at the John's Landing Water Tower.
