We’ve pretty much stopped covering Skullcandy headphone company since founder Rick Alden left in 2011, but now we get the news that Alden is back in the CEO position. Current CEO Jeremy Andrus has announced that he was joining a private investment firm, according to a story on Twice, and Alden is now back in as “interim CEO.”
In a statement, Alden said: “I am honored to play this role in the next chapter at Skullcandy. This company has been my life since founding it and I’m excited to come back in as we enter our second decade. I could not be more fired up to jump back in and get my hands dirty, especially around product development and geographic expansion.”
And to think he didn’t even mention it to us when we saw him (pictured far right with Dennis Nazari, Terry Kidwell, and Dave Wray) at the SIA Show in Denver. In other news Skullcandy’s stock was down 7 percent today.
