Angela Ogbechie is Deckers new Chief Supply Chain Officer
The California-based brand footwear, apparel and accessories has promoted Angela Ogbechie to the newly created role of Chief Supply Chain Officer. David Lafitte will step down as Chief Operating Officer
Ogbechie has held various operational roles at Deckers since 2008, most recently as SVP, Global Operations & Supply Chain Strategy. In her new role, Ogbechie will oversee all activities related to the global supply chain operations and logistics organization. She will become a member of the Executive Leadership Team, reporting directly to Dave Powers, Chief Executive Officer and President of Deckers Brands.

Ogbechie's promotion follows David Lafitte's decision to step down from his role as Chief Operating Officer. The supply chain functions currently reporting to Lafitte will now report to the Chief Supply Chain Officer, with other functions transitioning to the appropriate leaders on Deckers' executive team.

"Angela is perfectly suited for this new role, bringing the right mix of expertise and creativity from her 14 years working across all aspects of Deckers' global supply chain operations. Our logistics network was instrumental to our record-breaking success in fiscal 2022, and we expect it will continue to play a meaningful role in our overall operations moving forward. I'd like to thank David for his many years of service to Deckers, particularly his leadership in developing a world-class supply chain organization over his past seven years as COO. I am confident that Angela will pick up where he is leaving off and bring further innovation to our supply chain as we continue to drive growth for the business. I am excited for what is ahead and wish David the best in the next chapter of his career", commented Dave Powers.

"I am honoured to take on this new role, particularly at such an important time in the evolution of our supply chain and logistics network. While David leaves large shoes to fill, I look forward to working alongside the talented and dedicated Deckers team to support our continued growth", concluded Ogbechie.
