Beau is a very experienced product manager and designer with over 18 years of experience; 14 with Billabong and 4 with Volcom in the USA where he held the role of Senior Director of Global Boardshorts & Surf Products. In his time at Billabong Beau played a key role in designing products that received multiple awards including Environmental Product of the Year and the SurfAid Leader of Change Award. “Beau is the perfect guy to lead Creatures of Leisure – super passionate about surf hardware and excellent technical and design skills that are so necessary in our category. Hailing from Coolangatta on the Gold Coast, growing up with the likes of Mick Fanning & Joel Parkinson, he remains super connected in the industry both in Australia and around the world. We’re stoked to have him join our business and look forward to him playing a leading role in the next chapter of the Creatures story,” CEO Nathan Omodei said.
Beau made the following comments regarding his appointment. “Creatures of Leisure has always been my go-to since I was a grom so when I was given the opportunity to influence the future of the Creatures brand, product and team it was a rush of inspiration and drive. It’s a brand that hasn’t faulted, and there are some epic products and initiatives that I am already excited to launch with our amazing athletes. Above all that, I’m extremely confident in the leadership team behind Creatures. I believe they have the same drive as I to deliver the best surf & travel accessories. My focus is not to chase trends and follow gimmicks. Only to give solutions and greater user experience of products that work”, Beau said “Beau has hit the ground running and is already working with team riders and the product team to bring some exciting stuff to the market in the near future. Creatures is performing really well in our key markets and with Beau leading the brand, we feel it’s in safe hands”, Nathan said.
