SurfStitch, the online action sports retailer, appointed Nigel Phillips as its chief financial officer and Stephanie Belton as company secretary.

The two replace Karen Birner, who held both roles and resigned last month.

Phillips had been chief financial officer for the Asia Pacific region at Quiksilver from January 2006 until May 2016 and its chief operating officer for Asia Pacific from late 2010.  Belton was appointed general counsel for SurfStitch in September, and had previously worked for Qantas, P&O Group, Linklaters and Helloworld.
