The ef­fi­cient op­er­a­tional acu­men and strong footwear pro­duc­tion ca­pa­bil­i­ties have Ti­tan primed for ad­di­tional growth. The com­bi­na­tion of pro­pri­etary brands and pres­ti­gious li­censes cre­ates ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties and the abil­ity to ex­pand. I’m join­ing to of­fer strate­gic sup­port and lead­er­ship strength to help fa­cil­i­tate ac­cre­tive growth and prof­itabil­ity.”

We ex­pect to con­tinue to eval­u­ate op­por­tu­ni­ties to fur­ther ra­tio­nal­ize our port­fo­lio and max­i­mize value.”
