Heckmann Kicks Himself Upstairs At K2

by The Editors on February 16, 2007

K2, Inc announced today that J.Wayne Merck (the former COO) has been appointed President and CEO of K2 Inc. and on to the K2 Board of Directors. What has happened to chairman of the board Dick Heckmann? He’s still chairman of the board of directors, but he’s been given the uber-CEO title of Executive Chairman.

“Wayne is an accomplished leader and has a proven track record at K2, where he has been closely involved in all aspects of the day-to-day operations of K2 Inc. for the past six years,” said Mr. Heckmann. “We have built a strong team at K2 and will continue to do so. Since I will be 64 this year, Wayne and I, together with the Board of Directors, believed that it was the time to begin a smooth and seamless transition.

We didn’t know there was anything higher than President and CEO. Now we know.
