Quiksilver has announced that Joe Scirocco, who has been its chief financial officer since April 2007, is leaving to pursue other interests. He will remain in his current role for a while, pending the appointment of his successor. The company praised Scirocco for leading it through the difficult process that followed the start of the global financial crisis, coinciding with pressing needs to refinance its business. The company also said that it is on track to deliver substantial increases in sales and earnings. The management will provide an update on its financial situation at the annual ICR XChange Investor Conference next Jan. 12.
