Throughout her career Connie has delivered tremendous style to consumers and value to shareholders, and we look forward to the leadership she’ll now bring to fuel our next phase of growth,” said Gallagher.  “She is a great fit with our culture and we’re thrilled to have her with us on the Vionic adventure.”Through her leadership and strategic vision as President of UGG, Rishwain led its growth from a $10 million niche surf brand into a $1.5 billion global lifestyle brand. Prior to that she held other senior roles at Deckers (UGG, Teva and Simple brands), Impo International and Nine West Group.  Rishwain also sits on the board of K.I.D.S. (Kids in Distressed Situations) – Fashion Delivers, and was recently elected to the Board of Regents of University of Pacific.

I am excited to join Vionic and help build on the success they have achieved,” said Rishwain.  “Vionic has a great culture which is a reflection of the founders and team, and this greatly influenced my decision to become part of the Vionic family.”Since its U.S. introduction in 2008, Vionic Group emerged as a market-leader, helping to re-energize an otherwise slow-growth comfort category.  The company’s flagship Vionic brand continues to lead the way in reimagining style and science, challenging the belief that comfort can’t be stylish.  The brand’s innovative style-infused biomechanical technology provides what consumers describe as ‘addictive support,’ and they have responded with their loyalty, referral and repeat purchase.  Vionic is now a top-selling brand across global retail channels that include leading department, independent, specialty, online and home shopping retailers.
