On the heels of the completion of the merger between E.Land World Limited (E.Land) and K•Swiss Inc., owner of the K•Swiss and Palladium brands, E.Land has named a new global executive team to oversee the newly formed K•Swiss Inc. entity. Effective immediately, the K•Swiss Inc. global executive team will be led by Truman Kim, Chairman; Larry Remington, President and CEO; Barney Waters, CMO; and Wim Tuijl, Managing Director of Europe, Middle East and Africa. Ed Flora will remain in his position as the incumbent COO.

Additional executive appointments and key hires will be named later on. In his new appointment as President and CEO, Larry Remington will assume responsibility for the global operations of K•Swiss Inc. including the K•Swiss and Palladium businesses. Remington succeeds Steven Nichols, former K•Swiss CEO since 1987, and David Nichols, former president since 2012. As a 30-year industry veteran with a pedigree including executive positions at Foot Locker and Skechers, Remington most recently served as president of the Palladium brand under K•Swiss Inc. He contributed to the brand’s explosive growth in tandem with newly appointed CMO, Waters - tripling the brand’s revenue since its re-launch in mid 2009.

“This merger has created a wealth of opportunity for our organization,” said Remington. “We now have the right team in place to realize our full potential.”
