“We are thrilled to have Tim join the Skullcandy family. He is a timely and critical addition to our team as we continue our focus as a globally unified brand, with strategic growth into key international markets,” stated Mike Carter, Vice President of Global Marketing, Skullcandy. “His past international achievements with Oakley are simply stellar and we know his new efforts with the Skullcandy team will ensure our global brand vision.”

DeBrincat adds to the growing marketing team at Skullcandy Pacific, Skullcandy's first digs outside of its Park City, UT, headquarters.
