Deckers Outdoor Corporation said in a regulatory filing that, after nine years of valuable contributions and dedicated service to the company, Thomas A. George will be stepping down as chief financial officer of the company to pursue other interests.

In order to facilitate a smooth transition, which is expected to be concluded before the end of the calendar year, George has agreed to stay on in his current role to assist the company in continuing to pursue its strategic objectives until they have identified and named a successor. The company has initiated a search process with a leading executive search firm to find his replacement.
