Watsonville, CA, March 11, 2011 – FOX Racing Shox announced today that Larry L. Enterline has been appointed Chief Executive Officer of the company following the planned retirement of Bob Kaswen. Mr. Kaswen, who was the Chief Operating Officer from 2003 to 2008 and Chief Executive Officer since 2008, will remain active with the Company as a consultant.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed helping FOX Racing Shox achieve so much over the last eight years. It has been a pleasure to work with such a dedicated team of professionals and I look forward to continuing with the company in an advisory capacity going forward,” said Kaswen. “The appointment of Larry Enterline represents the culmination of a year of planning with our board of directors and senior management team as I have sought to take a step back and spend more time in support of my family. In Larry we have found a strong leader and manager who will build upon our historic successes,” Bob went on to say.
Most recently, Larry L. Enterline served as Chief Executive Officer of COMSYS Holdings, Inc. from which he retired in April 2010 after the sale of the company to Manpower, Inc.
