  • I wonder if anyone else listened to the DECK presentation yesterday. I virtually never criticize DECK management, but I have to say that I found this and other recent presentations by CEO Angel Martinez and COO Tom George to be somewhat distressingly underwheming -- not because I believe there is nothing exciting to say about the company, but rather because both of them seemingly make no effort to display enthusiasm or to generate enthusiasm in their audience about the company's products or prospects. So it is not surprising that the stock price weakened yesterday and today after the presentation (though I realize the stock was due for a pullback after a week of gains).

    I remember the days when Angel showed a lot of excitement at such events. But now he sounds much like a boring and pedantic professor in a business school seminar on marketing theory. It is difficult even to follow what he is saying. And Tom sounds like a mortician who is on the verge of falling asleep (maybe because he has had to listen to Angel's broken record about the evolution of omnichannel marketing, developing the in-store experience, and blah, blah, blah. And almost nothing about what they are selling!

    I am posting these comments in hopes that someone at DECK might read them and let Angel and Tom know what I have said. These executives owe it to the shareholders to try to do a better job of communicating the company's strengths to potential investors. Come on boys, show a little life!!!
