K-Swiss has promoted Dave Grange to the position of international brand president, replacing Barney Waters who is leaving the company after 12 years to lead an unnamed brand of eyewear. Grange was most recently vice president of sales in charge of the Americas for K-Swiss and Palladium, which became the property of Xtep International in 2019. He joined K-Swiss nine months ago after working as senior vice president of footwear at Lacoste North America since January 2018. He previously spent 16 years at Pentland Brands, focusing on its licensed Lacoste footwear line and running the business in North America before Lacoste footwear became a joint venture with Lacoste. In-between, Grange also worked for one year as vice president of North America for Keds and Pro Keds.
