Billabong Taps Ex-Nordstrom Exec for CFO Role
Billabong International Limited announced this week the appointment of Jim Howell as chief financial officer, succeeding Peter Myers, who has served in the role since January 2013.
Howell has spent the last 10 years leading the finance and treasury division at Nordstrom, where he oversaw significant cost management improvements, capital management and growth initiatives. He played a key role in the implementation of Nordstrom’s highly successful omnichannel retailing strategy, which has demonstrated consistent best-in-class financial performance.
“Howell, whose appointment comes after an extensive global search, has deep experience in retail, finance and operational management which is strongly aligned with Billabong’s business strategy,” said Billabong CEO Neil Fiske.
