Skullcandy Inc., the lifestyle audio brand, has been honored with inclusion in the annual list of U.S. Best Managed Companies in 2020. Sponsored by Deloitte Private and The Wall Street Journal, the program recognizes 27 companies for their overall business performance relative to leading practices across strategy, execution, culture, and finance.

Skullcandy has worked to transform the company back to its roots in music and board sports while expanding its product portfolio and moving into new markets. Through a strategic and data-driven approach, Skullcandy reset the brand’s foundation and identity, reinforced its earbuds and headphones portfolios, entered the True Wireless category, expanded global distribution, and built a successful direct-to-consumer business, all illustrating the company’s selection as one of 2020 U.S. Best Managed Companies. In 2019 Skullcandy was also named as one of Outside Magazine‘s “Best Places to Work.”

“We’re proud to be named a U.S. Best Managed Company as it recognizes the great execution by our global team to evolve our successful business,” said Jason Hodell, CEO, Skullcandy. “We are a passionate team committed to a values-driven culture, high employee engagement rates and even in difficult times we remain steadfast in reaching our goals.”

The U.S. Best Managed Companies award’s program is a mark of excellence for private companies with hundreds of organizations around the world competing for the designation through a rigorous and independent evaluation process by a panel of judges. Skullcandy joins a global community of over 1,000 organizations from 20 countries, representing a cross-section of industries including consumer, life sciences and healthcare, financial services, technology, media and telecom, energy, and industrial.
